Educational Areas

Middle School Level

 

Students at this level need to begin to understand the fundamental connections between earth and its climate

BUSINESS

 

Business will be one of the primary drivers in moving our world from fossil fuels to renewable energy forms.

Civic Leaders

 

Government officials need to be reminded of their duty to protect our country and ultimately the planet 

High School Level

 

All areas of science must be used to fortify connections of Earth and its climate. Human impact on the climate and the resulting issues are an essential topic in every high school science classroom.

Public

 

We all have a role to play in moving our world from fossil fuels to renewable energy forms. 

College Level

 

Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Environmental Science, Earth and Space Science, even Mathematics all play significant roles in understanding the complexity of the Earth's climate.  We need to discuss Climate Change in ALL of these disciplines in order to produce a climate literate society

 

OUR VISION

Develop educational tools for K through lifelong learners and provide workshops that will deliver these packaged educational materials and facilitate educator training.   

 

 

A climate science literate society is essential for our economy and our collective health and future.  We need to make decisions from a base of knowledge that includes the impact that the decision will have on our planets climate.

 

The eCLEAR initiative is aimed at creating ready to use modules that provide teacher/leader activities along with student activities. We are creating modules for elementary and middle school classrooms, modules for the high school classroom, and modules for use by the general public.

 

Our team of experts offers workshops to train teachers, civic leaders, and any group that is interested in Climate Science.
