Penang Science Center ZOOM PowPowEarth Workshop Sign Up Form: link 

Hi, my name is Gwen-Zoe Yang, aka Gwen Yang. I am the volunteer and founder of PowPowEarth

PowPowEarth is a service initiative to increase climate literacy of children. It helps children learn about Earth and its challenges through reading and writing about it. 

PowPowEarth combines my love for science, my belief in power of words (Pow), and my great concern about global warming! 

PowPowEarth aims to spark children's curiosity about nature, science, and the environment through fun topics and interactive methods. 

Volunteer Community Project 1 @ Penang Science Center, Penang Island, Malaysia : 

PowPowEarth  ZOOM  Reading + Writing Workshops about Climate, Science and the Environment for Kids. This project is meaningful to me because it gives back to a community integral to who I am; Penang Island is my mom's hometown. I contacted Penang Science Center (PSC) in Penang, Malaysia in December 2021 to explain my idea of a weekly nature and climate educational workshop for kids, and I was invited to teach a pilot to children at Penang Science Center via Zoom in March 2022. The pilot was not a flop. Therefore, since June 12, 2022, I have been teaching PowPowEarth workshops every Sunday (Malaysian time) to young children at PSC in Penang, Malaysia via Zoom. If you are interested for your children (Standard 2 to Standard 6) to attend the FREE PowPowEarth Workshops, please click form to register. Each weekly workshop is stand alone, you are welcome to attend ANY Sunday workshop! If you have any questions, please email me at people@powpow.earth or gwenzoeyang@gmail.com. Once you register for the weekly workshop, I'll send you the Zoom ID and the Google Classroom link (where reading materials, discussion topics, free write prompts, and my comments on students' writings are posted).
