Q
How do students sign up for an account on ZWS?
A

First, find out what teachers from your school are working with the ZWS website. As a student, you cannot start posting until a teacher from your school approves you as a user.

Not sure if you know a teacher who can approve you? Start asking adults at your schools about who can help! Good people to ask are the Principal, Sustainability Coordinator, or a science teacher.

Q
Who can participate?
A
All DOE schools can participate in ZWS website and contests. We encourage all DOE schools to participate in this website and contests.
