We give science teachers the tools and skills to help students overcome misconceptions and misinformation about climate change, evolution, and the nature of science.
Current climate change patterns will be affecting future generations for years to come. Today’s students are this planet’s future superheroes! NCSE’s final climate change lesson set explores students' roles in both mitigating and adapting to life in a rapidly changing climate. In a lesson set meant to infuse students with hope, students investigate the economic, social, and environmental impacts of climate solutions. Throughout this storyline, students are guided through a self-exploration of what it means to be a community scientist and the discoveries that can be made using crowd-sourced data. By empowering students to engage in local community science projects, students will gain the confidence to take action in order to help counteract climate change.
