The Nevada Climate Change Project is dedicated to advancing not only the frontiers of observational sciences, but also the understanding of those fields by students, instructors, and members of the public at large. To this end, a number of educational materials and informative articles are made available that explain various aspects of the research that is conducted as a part of the project.
Hands-on experiments — found to the right — are designed for 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.
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.
