Teaching about Climate Change: Here and Now

During this half-day symposium, scientists and education specialists from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service (USFS) explained how to teach climate change to students in a variety of grade levels. Participants learned about human health impacts of climate change and gathered ideas and resources for service learning and citizen science projects. Participants also received educational materials, including the Climate Change Toolkit, which aims to create climate literate students who can make informed decisions in the future. Each participant received a $60 stipend for attendance. All participants also received access to resources and other information available on the participating government agencies’ websites.

The program was held at the NSTA National Conference on Science Education in Indianapolis, Indiana on March 29, 2012.
