about climate kids
Climate Kids is a series of community level collaborative projects that provide youth education on climate change through science activities, storytelling, and art. Each Climate Kids project brings together local artists, scientists, educators, and storytellers to engage students of all socioeconomic levels and inspire them to become environmental stewards.
Through partnerships with climate scientists and qualified educators, we encourage curiosity about the natural world while providing youth the tools necessary to make educated decisions about how to protect our planet in the future.
Climate Kids is an initiative of the Climate Science Alliance.
how we teach
Climate Kids uses
age-appropriate, hands-on science activities to demonstrate the process of climate change and its impacts in our region.
Art deepens students' understanding of climate change by encouraging creative expression. Students learn that art can be a powerful tool to "share the story of climate change" with others.
Storytelling engages students on the topic of climate change in a fun and interactive way.
Students are sent on a field trip where they can connect with nature at one of many beautiful outdoor education sites in the south coast.
Upon completing a Climate Kids program, each student is recognized with a Certificate of Excellence along with a Climate Kids badge to signify their new role as an environmental steward.
