EduChange - practical solutions for real-world educators
A Call to Action for all STEM Educators

On the eve of the COP21 Talks on Climate Change, in a city recovering from unspeakable violence, the EduChange team is asking all STEM educators to consider devoting a lesson or more over the next month to educating your students about climate change. Do you know any secondary-level STEM educators who would enjoy some high-quality teaching resources?

We provide resources and activities in our Science Teacher Resource Library, which is free and requires a one-time registration to keep the hackers at bay. 
Engage students in this global conversation and show solidarity for constructive, positive action in Paris beginning November 30.  

 
Example Resources in our Library (click here to access)
 
A recently-released video collection of expert voices on climate change impacts, across many sectors of society 
 
An activity using Arctic sea ice historical data to create an animation and compare it to a NASA version
 
A collection of primers and backgrounders for educators, helping you get up to speed on a particular issue that relates to your subject area
 
An activity using just-published interactive maps that help students explore the impact of rising sea levels
 
A database of predictions (yep, predictions) of global soil profiles
 
A design challenge and rubric aligned to an international community of solar cookers
 
A newly-updated interactive inquiry-based lab from Stanford about the impacts of ocean acidification

An activity utlizing a consumer database of environment- and health-friendly sunscreens

If there ever was a time to depart from the syllabus, this is it. Indeed, climate change and peace are the syllabus. Encourage STEM educators you know to be part of the global conversation.


Yours in STEM,
