Investigate the impacts of climate change on 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 sea-level rise adaptations.
PROGRAM OBJECTIVES (Grades 9-12)
- 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
