You are invited to help NASA develop innovative and engaging lessons focused on climate change science! In this workshop keyed to the California science standards (including the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards), you’ll learn about natural and human-caused climate change and its environmental, societal and economic impacts, become familiar with NASA’s contributions to climate change science, and explore newly-developed multimedia educational tools featuring climate-action superhero, The Green Ninja! http://www.greenninja.info/).
Over the course of the week, you will collaborate with your colleagues and workshop instructors to develop new and/or adapt existing climate science-based lesson plans to best suit your particular instructional needs. Once completed, these lesson plans will be made available to teachers across the country.
