Congratulations to Team Torwood from Bristol in the United Kingdom for winning this week’s Global Team of the Week Award!
The moment this team registered they started completing activities and uploading newsreels largely independently. The students have been really active and quickly made their way up the UK leaderboard. They have created their own recipe book of healthy recipes using food with the lowest water content, they have written their own water rap along with a calming water music PowerPoint. The team recently went to their local river to complete the MiniSASS challenge where their river scored a fair condition. They saw eels, fish and worms!
Keep up the amazing work Torwood – some Water Explorer water bottles are coming your way!
