Climate Kids - Washington Team Gears Up for Spring Expansion

Our Climate Kids educators in Washington State are excited to expand their program this Spring to incorporate the new Climate Science and Atmospheric Chemistry Traveling Trunk, Pollinator Paradise Program, and the Youth Climate Challenge!

The Climate Kids program kicked off in Washington State last Fall with educators successfully connecting their students to the Climate Kids Climate Science and Oceans and Climate Science and Carnivores curriculum. In January 2020, our Climate Kids -Washington educators are excited to expand their program to incorporate our new Climate Science and Atmospheric Chemistry Traveling Trunk, Pollinator Paradise Program, and the Youth Climate Challenge!

Climate Kids is a multi-generational collaborative that supports youth education on climate change and natural resources through hands-on science activities, storytelling, field trips, and art. We nurture the budding scientists and stewards in students from all socioeconomic backgrounds with activities that demonstrate climate impacts in the form of ocean acidification, drought, precipitation, and temperature extremes. Since 2014, the Climate Kids program has successfully inspired over 100,000 students and trained 2,000 formal and informal educators on consistent climate change messaging. Through strategic partnerships with climate scientists and qualified educators, this program encourages curiosity about the natural world while providing the tools necessary to take educated action on how to protect our community and planet now.

The Climate Kids team trained these new partner-educators on how to use these new resources and how to engage students on climate change concepts. In addition, the Climate Kids team will continue to work with the Washington program to build and adapt the curriculum to be regionally specific to the Washington area.

We are excited to see the success of the Climate Kids program in Washington and look forward to supporting these educators in their climate education endeavors.
