Weather and Climate for Educators – 2015 Professional Development Series for Teachers


Posted on 6th March 2015 by Rodger


The Science of Weather and Climate — July 6-8, 2015 
Registration fee: $150.00

In this 3-day course we’ll use a mix of activities and discussion to explore essential science principles (energy, motion, forces, light and color, states of matter) that explain the Earth’s weather and climate. We won’t assume that participants have an extensive science background—only a willingness to explore and experiment, and to try new things in your own classroom!

Weather and Climate Across the Globe — July 13-15, 2015 
Registration fee: $150.00 

This 3-day course is intended for teachers of earth system science and physical science. We’ll take an in-depth look at energy transport and the motion of air and water in the earth system, explaining in some detail how patterns of weather and climate emerge.

Climate Change: Past and Future — July 16-17, 2015 
Registration fee: $100.00

In this 2-day course, we will consider the long story of climate changes in the deep past. Then we will look in detail at how increasing CO2 and other greenhouse gases are likely to change climate in the 21st Century and beyond. We will consider the fate of anthropogenic CO2, and how it is taken up by dissolving in the ocean and storage in plants and soils on land. Finally, we will look at some of the strategies being developed to mitigate and adapt to modern climate change.
