AP Connections with the Student Video Contest

Students in Advanced Placement classes will gain key skills and essential knowledge by participating in the World of 8 Billion video competition. The contest is a fabulous project for AP Human Geography and AP Environmental Science, as well as AP Biology.

Below we’ve listed the Units and Topics from the APHG, APES and APBio frameworks that are covered by the three 2022-2023 topics: Gender Equality, Waste, and Climate Change. You’ll find a PDF under each course that includes the specific Essential Knowledge from your CED.
