The Challenge of Climate Change—Middle School

This course will focus on a serious environmental issue of this century and beyond: climate change. We will explore the science associated with both the natural greenhouse effect, and the overwhelming influence of human emissions in driving temperatures up over the past two centuries, and likely much more during this century and beyond. We will also discuss how governments and individuals can help address climate change. The course will also include hands-on activities to help reinforce scientific concepts.

NOTE: Due to unforeseen circumstances surrounding COVID-19, all in-person daytime programs have been cancelled. We will resume our on-campus Pre-College daytime programs in summer of 2021.
