Chemistry & Climate Change
Saturday, October 11th
10 am – 12pm
Teachers will get an overview of what we know about climate change and how we know it. Enjoy some simple chemistry, videos, games, and student inventions. This is a great, standards-based way to teach and inspire students to think about our impact on the environment, economics and social change.
Participants will also be treated to a FREE simulated space mission to Mars in our Challenger Learning Center from 1:00 – 3:00pm.
