90 minutes

Investigate the impacts of climate change to our atmosphere and shorelines in Climate & Our Coast. Students will develop solutions to the effects of climate change by analyzing the delicate balance of the carbon cycle and engineering models of seal level rise adaptations.

Program Objectives

  • Students will define weather and climate
  • Students will explore global and local impacts of climate change
  • Students will create a model that engineers solutions to protect shorelines from sea level rise
  • Students will discuss the carbon cycle, its impacts on our ecosystem, and reducing their own carbon footprints
