Engage in hands-on activities and discussion you can use to introduce climate science concepts into the topics you already teach.

Climate science is complicated, but it is based on fundamental concepts from our more familiar sciences. So the complexity offers opportunities to integrate climate science into teaching the concepts already included in your courses. This workshop is designed to help you see how to fit climate science into what you are already doing. The hands-on activities focus on the properties of water (including phase change, heat capacity, solubility, and acid/base chemistry) and how these properties of Earth’s bodies of water are affected by human-caused increases in atmospheric greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide, and the resultant global warming. Many of the activities will be directly usable or easily adaptable for use in your classroom. All the written and projected materials will be available to you electronically for use in your classrooms.
