Kids play a game of Hudson River jenga

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
