A triple success!
At the “Hans-Riegel-Fachpreise” competition in the administrative district of Swabia 2021 all three prizes were awarded to pupils, who were doing research within the BAYSICS W-seminar in the subject geography. Our heartfelt congratulations go to…
… Franziska Strobl from the Maria-Ward-Gymnasium Augsburg (teacher: Barbara Ferhadbegovic) for winning the first prize with her project “The importance and effectivity of green buildings as a measure against climate change”.
… Hannah Saur from the Albrecht-Ernst-Gymnasium Oettingen (teacher: Martin Heilbronner) for winning the second prize with her project “Companies in the Donau-Ries region dealing with climate change: handling corporate climate protection and the consequences of climate change”.
… Johanna Wagner from the Albrecht-Ernst-Gymnasium Oettingen (teacher: Martin Heilbronner) for winning the third prize with her project “Does climate change impact the symptoms of pollen allergy?”.
The BAYSICS subproject 8, which is located at the Chair of Geography Education at the University of Augsburg and lead by Sebastian Brumann and Prof. Dr. Ulrike Ohl, enables high school pupils to act as citizen scientists and investigate regional climate change “on their own door step”. Currently, 50 schools all across Bavaria are actively engaged in the project: BAYSICS school projects.
