15773 Ecosystems and Environmental Science
Climate change is not just a hot-button issue, but one of the most important issues facing our planet and future generations. As teachers, it is our responsibility to give the next generation of global citizens the tools they need to understand climate change issues. Join The Science House, Catawba College, and the NC State Climate Office in Ocracoke for an exciting week delving into the science of climate change. We will be utilizing tools and protocols developed by scientists to look at changes occurring on the island due to the pressures of a shifting climate. These tools can be used to help you build and implement an engaging, inquiry-based unit to deepen student learning of climate science wherever you may teach in NC. Explore the island s delicate ecosystems to collect and analyze data, connect with climate and environmental scientists, and enhance your teacher toolbox!
