Earth Then, Earth Now: Our Changing Climate
Participants engage in an activity to identify carbon sources and sinks in New Orleans, LA.

During this half-day Symposium, scientists and education specialists from SRS, NOAA, and USFS talked about the basic science behind our understanding of climate change, and global impacts on the atmosphere, ecosystems (particularly forests), and oceans around the world. The presenters, some of whom were prominent scientists, drew upon the latest science to provide a story of our changing climate and they included hands-on activities for classroom use and current ideas for facing our climate challenge and creating a healthier planet.


This symposium was held at the NSTA National Conference on Science Education in New Orleans, LA. The program was designed for teachers 5-12.
