Due to COVID-19 and public health concerns, we are postponing the Climate Clinic series. It will likely be a full day workshop instead of a 3 week series.

Please know that we are disappointed, but felt we needed to do our part.   We appreciate your understanding. We will continue to pay close attention to the ongoing situation caused by the COVID-19 which has impacted many countries, people and communities across the world.

Want to incorporate climate science into your curriculum?

In this free, after-school series you’ll gain the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to build educational lesson plans for this spring and next year.  Sessions will include meeting local experts, building your knowledge of climate science, and exploring climate justice using interactive, inquiry-based lessons and investigating the local impacts of climate change.
