One of a suite of online climate interactive simulations, this Greenhouse Gas Simulator uses the bathtub model to demonstrate how atmospheric concentrations of CO2 will continue to rise unless they are lowered to match the amount of CO2 that can be removed through natural processes.

In this classroom activity, students measure the energy use of various appliances and electronics and calculate how much carbon dioxide (CO2) is released to produce that energy.

In this webinar we will hear from three organizations working to provide resources that support comprehensive implementation of NGSS: Jo Ellen Roseman will introduce curricula developed through AAAS Project 2061; James Kessler will introduce the American Chemical Society K-8 curriculum; and Aleeza Oshry will introduce a planning guide being developed through her work at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

For the CLEAN Network and beyond, our work in communicating about climate change has never been more important. From the threats posed by the new political climate, to fake news, to some in our community still shooting themselves in the foot on some issues, the challenges are enormous.

The REcharge Academy is a week-long educator training workshop centered around renewable energy. The intensive training blends lectures from experts and tours of energy facilities with replicable hands-on K-12 lessons to give educators content as well as context.

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.

A recent systematic literature review explored climate change education to understand effective strategies for teaching about this topic. Using the EBSCOhost search engine, we found 959 unique records and screened these abstracts for studies including empirically measured outcomes of an educational intervention. A final sample of 49 papers were read by the research team and several common themes emerged from analysis.

The primary mission of Climate Stories Project is providing a space to discuss how climate change intersects with our lives. CSP facilitates this dialogue and encourages personal engagement with climate change by sharing audio and video narratives of people from around the world speaking about their observations of global warming in their communities. This webinar will discuss the development of Climate Stories Project, describe educational workshops it has facilitated, and discuss future directions for the project. We hope to inspire educators to make use of CSP in their own classrooms or in other community settings.

Learn about the scientific tools EPA scientists are developing to help states, communities and Tribes make decisions about energy use now and in the future. Explore an interactive board game developed by EPA scientists called Generate! that explores energy choices and the environment and gets students “energized” in some friendly competition.

Addressing climate change starts with deeper learning, understanding, and caring, and that true understanding and behavior change requires more than new information. That's where systems thinking comes in. During the presentation, we'll highlight the ThinkWater systems thinking framework and share key strategies and resources that could help build the movement of climate thinkers.
