This project is a segment of the new 7th grade "Science and New Technologies" course offered at Escola Parque Gávea in 2012. The course's main objective is to develop critical thinking about sustainable development, while building 21st century skills and digital literacy in the classroom. We aim for both student action and introspection by proposing activities that allow for a hands-on approach through cross media, while exploring the impact of technology (old and new) in the system's ecology.
