Clark County Climate Change Science Activities

Hands-on experiments — found to the right — are designed to provide instructors with interactive exercises that enhance student understanding of the environment and research. These exercises have been grouped together based upon their expected student audience, but are potentially of interest to all students.

Informative articles — found to the left — provide background and information related to climate science, as well as the specific research undertaken as a part of this project. These short, illustrated topics are meant to explain specific scientific research techniques or topics, spurring discussion amongst students, instructors, and researchers.

Case studies – found below – are lesson plans that middle and high school teachers can use which are based on actual scientific research that was conducted as part of the NSF EPSCoR Climate Change Project.

In addition, by using the link below, students and teachers can access the Lib Guide. This is an annotated guide to resources useful for understanding and communicating climate science and climate change risks

Students and instructors are encouraged to enhance their understanding of climate research by undertaking some research of their own, using the data collected by the project in the classroom or for projects. The available data is the same that seasoned researchers use in their analyses, and it is made available just as promptly. The live web cameras and site conditions are also available throughout the day.
