UNL summer workshop: Teaching about Earth's changing climate


High school teachers are invited to participate in a research-based professional learning opportunity this Summer 2020.

This 3-day workshop in Lincoln, Nebraska, will share a new climate science curriculum module (CliMES) focused on supporting students’ 3-D learning through the use of NASA’s web-based climate data and global climate modeling tools. The workshop will provide experiences with the use of EzGCM, an online toolkit that makes an authentic NASA global climate model accessible to high school students via curricular resources that have been prepared and tested for the past three years in partnership with Lincoln Public Schools.

Dates: July 20-22, 2020
Receive: Complete set of CliMES curriculum resources and access to the EzGCM climate model, $500 stipend, and (optional) 3 UNL graduate credit hours at a
reduced tuition rate, plus an additional $500 stipend ($1000 total)
