The Dudley Challenges

Challenge 2000, Challenge Europa and Challenge Trek are a series of virtual balloon race aimed at pupils between the ages of eight and thirteen, although students up to the age of 91 have been taking part! The idea is to promote effective use of ICT, initiative and independent and collaborative learning. The Challenges support learning in a wide variety of subjects. The key to Challenge being used successfully is not just finding where the balloon is - it is about the learning that is going on in the classroom while pupils are engaged in the activity.
