The Climate Change Schools Project, winner of the 2011 National Climate Week â€˜Best Educational Initiativeâ€™ award, aims to put climate change at the heart of the national curriculum and make schools â€˜beaconsâ€™ for positive action in their local communities. A model for the development of local school programs.
C2S2 provides professional development for teachers, resources for teaching climate change, and a summit for students to share knowledge and ideas about climate change with scientists and with students from other cultures and latitudes.
Educator resources for use in informal and formal learning environments. Activities in phenology, data collection, and analysis that can be shared with other students and educators around the world.
Air pollution curricula with real-time data projects.
Air Pollution: Whatâ€™s the Solution? utilizes real time data to guide students, grades 6 – 12, to discover the science behind outdoor air pollution. The project contains exciting applications of the Internet by having students access real time atmospheric data, weather data and other sources. Students will focus on the science behind air quality issues, look for relationships and trends among the data collected via real time sources, and will examine the health impact of air pollution.
Proposal for a three phase plan with rationale to research and develop climate mitigation technologies.
Issues in Science & Technology is a forum for discussion of public policy related to science, engineering, and medicine. This includes policy for science (how we nurture the health of the research enterprise) and science for policy (how we use knowledge more effectively to achieve social goals), with emphasis on the latter.
EERL's mission is to be the best possible online collection of environmental and energy sustainability resources for community college educators and for their students. The resources are also available for practitioners and the public.
