Climate & Our Coast

Grades 9–12

In this program, students investigate the impacts of climate change on our atmosphere and shorelines. Sea level rise is one of the ongoing effects of climate change that has major implications for New York City’s 520 miles of shoreline. This program will introduce students to the delicate balance of the carbon cycle and challenge them to engineer solutions to our rising tides.
