Earth’s climate has evolved in remarkable ways since our planet’s origin. It also changes over shorter time periods in response to natural processes and human actions. These changes can impact our lives on a daily basis, now and in the future. Scientists draw upon many different, yet interrelated, fields of the geosciences as they strive to understand climate and global change.
This series of web seminars, funded by NASA, is designed to bring climate and global change education resources to secondary educators. Join us for one or more of the seminars. Each web seminar is designed to stand alone, so you can pick and choose the seminars that interest you. Or, join us for all six topics!
Part of the Global Climate Change Educator Professional Development Network,
these seminars highlight science content, NASA resources, and standards-aligned classroom activities on topics related to climate change for the secondary science classroom. Community-building discussion opportunities will be available after each seminar for participants to continue the discussion.
These web seminars build upon the online climate change education courses, NCAR Online Education: Climate Discovery (http://ecourses.ncar.ucar.edu/), developed and offered by the University Consortium for Atmospheric Research Office of Education and Outreach. Please visit NCAR Online Education for more information about these longer, multi-week courses.
