Our Vision

Our goal is to build an internet site that acts in supplement to current in-class environmental science education for K-12 students. Also, we aim for accessibility of our content by the general public. Student learning and their experience will be tracked through surveys and quizzes. Our site is appropriate for use in public locations, such as school classrooms, libraries, at home, or at the workplace. Students and teachers may find this site especially useful while studying and teaching the science of climate change.


Learning Objectives:

1. List factors that influence climate on Earth.

2. Identify greenhouse gases and their sources and define their role in climate.

3. Identify the countries that contribute the most to greenhouse gas emissions.

4. Identify ways in which climate and climate change are studied.

5. Describe similarities and differences between weather and climate models.

6. Explain how the current rate of climate change compares with past episodes of climate change.

7. List various pieces of evidence for current climate change.

8. Describe evidence for human involvement in current climate change.

9. Explain the IPCC process.

10. List anticipated effects of future climate change, and determine which are considered most likely.
