The Science of Climate Change

by  Long Island Science Center

Program image

Scientists have studied the effect humans have on our plant
for decades. Students will learn what climate change is, what it means for our
planet, and creative new ways people are developing to address the issues we
face. Participants will also learn about how our oceans affect our climate
systems. Students will perform an experiment that will help them visualize how
climate change affects our ecosystem.

Program Details

Format

1.The program will start with a question and answer section to establish a rapport and the level of understanding of the subject the students have.
2. The educator will explore how earth's atmosphere functions and what the "Greenhouse Effect" is and why it occurs.
3. The educator will explore what role the ocean plays in our weather systems and how an increase in carbon dioxide is affecting it.
4. The educator will lead a discussion on what current and future solutions for managing climate change are.
5. If time allows, we take questions and moderate further discussion.

Objectives

- Explore the concepts of weather and climate
- Develop an understanding of the interaction of the gases that make up our environment with our ecosystem
- Understand the processes by which our planet warms, cools, and produces weather
- Develop an understanding of pH and how it relates to ecosystem health
- Engage in a discussion about current and future solutions
