Bored of half term already? Get the kids developing digital skills and learning about climate change with Angelica Bell's new project The Edit. The television and radio presenter joined the Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky today to talk about her new project focussing on climate change and education.

She told Sam Pinkham who was standing in for Chris: “It's about improving their skills and also trying to focus on low income areas as well.

“We want to challenge them to want to create a news report about climate change and we know how climate change really is quite an important topic for lots of people about the world they're living in right now.

“They're acutely aware of it but also the world they’re going to be occupying when they get older in 20 years time.

“This is a fantastic way for them to channel their fears, their thoughts and ideas by creating this digital content whether it's with their school, whether it's at home, whether it's individuals, whatever you want it to be, however each student wants to tell their story.

“They get involved in this competition which Sky and Adobe have set up. They can use Sky News footage as well - how cool is that?”

How do you get involved? She said: “Go to the website and submit your entries by April 23rd, everything is clearly laid out.”
