Advancing Climate Literacy through investment in In-Service and Pre-Service Science Educators

Provide inservice teachers, pre-service faculty and their students with opportunities to:

  • Develop in-depth content knowledge of climate science and climate change, specifically focused on sea level rise, greenhouse effect, carbon cycle, and ocean acidification.
  • Be able to use an NGSS-aligned, three dimensional approach to teaching.
  • Develop necessary skills to work with real-time data and use data in authentic ways to foster student-led inquiry.
