Climate Change – One Student @ a Time

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

The purpose of this project is to raise awareness and responsibility in the minds of American School Aged Youth by engaging the students in a meaningful exploration of Global Climate Change Science. The project also will address national science standards embedded in Science Curriculum for the Classroom grades 6 – 8.

The project will assemble a kit for science and/or social studies teachers that will add fun to the study of Climate Change. The kit will be housed at the University of New Mexico, in the Maxwell Museum of Science, and also at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History. The Computer program component is made to double as a stand-alone application (can be used without the “kit”) and, if needed, will have priority funding and replace the kit as the entire project.
