Sabrina Zhang and Jack Prater on The Earth Prize and Global Environmental Projects

Sabrina Zhang and Jack Prater on The Earth Prize

On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast, Tom Vander Ark is joined by a high school student Sabrina Zhang. We are also joined by Jack Prater, one of Sabrina’s teachers at Polytechnic School in Pasadena, California. They recently collaborated as a mentor/mentee team in The Earth Prize competition, a $200k global competition for students to create solutions to climate-related challenges. 

We’re really just trying to provide the resources the students need, they lead the conversation.
