We will introduce the World Energy Simulation, an exercise designed to help people understand global energy and policy dynamics to address climate change. This fun and engaging simulation has been used with college students, business leaders, and decision-makers.

You will learn a fun hands-on activity for students to build their own monitor using the latest micro sensors. These air sensor kits measure particle pollution (commonly known as dust) and turn on light bulbs based on the level in the atmosphere.

This year the summer institute will be focusing on our curriculum, Next Generation Climate (NGC). Next Generation Climate is a six lesson, interdisciplinary, middle school climate change curriculum that has students investigate the cause of the global temperature change, research the major repercussions of climate change, and find out how they can monitor and minimize those repercussions.

Wednesday, February 18th – 4:00pm PT/7:00pm ET
