Quests are assignments you can do alone or together, outside or on your PC.

In a way, Climate Quest is never finished. Students can, assisted by the teacher if they want, help to further build this portal by entering their own ideas, videos or their own climate games. Climate Quest more or less works the way Wikipedia does. Students can also use this portal to chat with people of their own age. Teachers can subscribe an entire class, enabling them to do assignments as a Guild (team).
This portal features a special Teachers’ Room where you can add and rewrite quests (assignments), check the scores made by your class and a lot more. Climate Quest also has an extended climate library and a climate search engine, so that you will never run out of information or educational material. This means you can also use this portal as an additional reference work, or to find more material dealing with the climate change.
