Includes an on-line component

Climate change impacts our natural and engineered environments, our health, and our communities. You hear about it on the news, but are you prepared to teach about the global impacts of climate change and solutions? MADE CLEAR and NOAA invite educators in the Mid-Atlantic to apply for the 2017 Climate Education Academy.

Join us to learn about

  • The causes and effects of climate change
  • How climate change impact your area
  • Solutions and stewardship activities

Get up to speed on climate change and Earth System Science with a five-part on-line component before the face to face Academy.  In August we will jump into climate change  science with three dimensional lessons, interactions with climate science experts, authentic data analysis, and on-line simulations. Share your classroom experiences with others working to bring this important topic to their students.  

Develop awareness of additional professional learing opportunities supporting earth systems science education

You will receive classroom materials and resources to start your climate focused earth systems science teaching portfolio. You may earn professional certification hours based on participation and submission of a teaching plan. Lodging and meals will be provided.
