Welcome to the
Climate Innovation Challenge!

CIC is our free international STEAM program for grades 3-12 that guides students through the creation of climate change solutions while developing storytelling and video production skills.

At the culmination of the Challenge, CAVU showcases outstanding student videos and awards cash prizes to top entries. We aspire to give students a sense of agency and possibility as they move into their educational and professional futures in a climate-challenged world.

Register today for access to CAVU’s science and storytelling curriculum. This curriculum meets Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and English Language Arts (ELA) Common Core standards for middle school students. Built-in flexibly allows it to serve elementary and high school students as well.

CIC develops a range of skills, including: leadership, video production, storytelling, critical thinking, digital media literacy, team building, research, project management, interdisciplinary approaches, creative problem solving, and environmental literacy.
