Looking to for a Class in the Australia/New Zealand Area to Collaborate

Greetings All,

I am looking for a class to work with my group of middle school students on the NAIS Challenge 20/20 project this year. The objective of the project is to have students
from different countries to explore the issues in each of their
communities, and to come up with a solution to carry out.  Below you
will find the blurb from the website"

"Challenge 20/20 is an Internet-based program that pairs classes at any grade level (K-12) from schools in the U.S. with their counterpart
classes in schools in other countries; together the teams (of two or
three schools) tackle real global problems to find solutions that can
be implemented at the local level and in their own communities. 

Schools do not have to be NAIS members to participate!  We accept private, public, charter schools from the US and any other country.  Schools can
also be elementary or secondary."

I'm very excited for the opportunity, as I know the students are. Australia/New Zealand is our social studies theme for the year, so that
region is of highest interest, but a class an interested class in any
other area will work just as well.
