Encourage them to get involved! The best way to support them is to help them to log in, then keep an eye on the scoreboard and cheer them on. 

How could I run this event with my students?

You could:

  • Allocate one or more of your lessons to the event and guide students towards specific content (ie revision materials from recent topics); 
  • Assign the Challenge as a fun homework activity for your students.
  • Run the Challenge as an extra-curricular event, and offer time for students to participate during lunchtime and/or after school.
