The NOAA Climate Stewards Education Project (CSEP) provides formal and informal educators working with elementary through university age students with sustained professional development, collaborative tools, and support to build a climate-literate public actively engaged in climate stewardship. CSEP also provides support for educators to develop and execute climate stewardship (mitigation and/or adaptation) projects with their audiences to increase understanding of climate science and take practical actions to reduce the impacts of climate change.
K–12 educators can access an archive of webinars exploring climate change and its impacts. Produced by scientists and educators from NOAA’s Climate Stewards Education Project, each 90-minute webinar addresses a different aspect of climate change. The webinars can help teachers stay informed on climate change issues, revitalize K–12 Earth science lessons, and learn how to develop and execute a climate action project with students. Titles include The Connectedness in the Climate System; Sleuthing the Climate Past, Projecting the Climate Future; Spanning Time and Spatial Scales: Modeling the Planet’s Climate; Using Simple Models in Climate Change Education; and Making Climate Change Communication Stick.
