Curriculum Development Opportunity for Teachers:
Project-Based Global Climate Change Education


Develop, implement and assess new climate change curriculum – Learn to use NASA geospatial data to develop new project-based climate change units for middle and high school classrooms. 

2010 Summer Workshop – A select set of 10 middle school STEM and high school earth science and environmental science and biology teachers from across New York participated in a two-week summer workshop. These teachers were selected based on their commitment to learn climate change science, the impacts of climate change on our planet and their ability to work together to create inquiry- and project-based learning experiences and lessons that highlight and integrate NASA earth observation system data and models. New units are being piloted in 2010-2011 academic year. 

Clarkson University, Potsdam NY
