Learn about integrating climate change education into your classroom or informal education programming, get an introduction to regionally relevant climate science, and hear about how other educators have used these materials in the past.
We’ll cover Ohio Sea Grant’s updated Great Lakes Climate Change Curriculum, along with climate and Great Lakes literacy principles, and informal resources like OSU’s Global Change, Local Impact webinar series. The webinar will be presented by educators who have used the resources in their own teaching.
