EnviroChallenge At HomeThe EnviroChallengers Have Gone Digital!

Every weekday while school is out, the EnviroChallengers will be sharing an "EnviroChallenge of the Day" to support student learning.


The challenges align with state standards, can be tailored for different ages, and, in typical EnviroChallenger fashion, will entail a lot of fun!

You can also follow us on Facebook at facebook.com/TacomaSustainability for new challenges posted Monday through Friday.
