The UW PCC hosts workshops that promote interaction between science teachers and UW scientists with the goal of bringing our current understanding of climate into the classroom.
Saturday May 18, 2019 —“Does a few degrees C of global warming matter?”
UW faculty member Kyle Armour and his graduate students led a small group of high school teachers through the fundamentals of climate models and a strategy for teaching students about why models predict different futures. Prof. Armour reframed and extended the climate model lesson and set the stage for development of adaptations of this lesson for participant’s classrooms.
In October 2016 we hosted “Current Climate for Science Teachers” at the UW-Seattle campus.
Presentations were made by subject area experts, including both faculty and graduate students from STEM disciplines.
2016 Presentations and schedule
In October 2015 we took a team to the Washington State Teachers Association Annual Meeting.
We presented and discussed results from recent IPCC and other reports, and gave participants the opportunity to dig deeper into Ocean Acidification, Landslides and Paleoclimate labs.
