Climate Change Here and Now: Forest Ecosystem Impacts

During this half-day Symposium, scientists and education specialists from Sally Ride Science and the U.S. Forest Service discussed the basic science behind our understanding of climate change, highlighting global impacts on forest ecosystems. The Symposium addressed the important role of forests in the carbon cycle, and included U.S. regional climate change impacts. The program helped participants engage their students through learning about the impacts of climate change that affect them where they live. The presenters drew upon the latest science to provide a story of our changing climate and lead participants in classroom ready activities that are inquiry oriented and hands-on. Current ideas for facing our climate challenge and creating a healthier planet were also discussed.


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