New Atmospheric Chemistry Traveling Trunk Available for Check Out!

Bringing to life aerosols - one of the most poorly understood components of Earth’s atmosphere - and their impact on our lives and the changing climate, the Climate Science Alliance’s New Atmospheric Chemistry Traveling Trunk is Now Available!

The new Climate Science and Atmospheric Chemistry Trunk is now available to be checked out!

This trunk brings to life aerosols - one of the most poorly understood components of Earth’s atmosphere - and their impact on our lives and the changing climate, while inspiring and encouraging students to do their part to help protect the earth. Through science, art, and storytelling activities, students will gain an understanding of the current science behind atmospheric chemistry, the impact of aerosols on climate and public health, and how scientists are working to better understand the issues that we face at the intersection of these topics.

Climate Kids Traveling Trunks provide resources educators need to teach climate science in the classroom. Each trunk includes background information, lesson plans, powerpoints, activities, and materials to increase climate literacy for K-12th grade youth. Climate Kids trunks feature interactive and hands on science, storytelling and art curriculum aligned to Next Generation Science Standards.

For San Diego educators, the Climate Science and Atmospheric Chemistry Trunk can be checked out through the San Diego Natural History Museum’s Nature to You Loan Program. With a Loan to You Membership, the trunks can be checked out for a period of two weeks at a time and picked up from our partners at the San Diego Natural History Museum's Nature to You Loan Program. If membership is prohibitive for any Alliance Members to utilize this resource, please contact us at info@climatesciencealliance.org.

For the Climate Science Alliance’s Tribal Partners - Trunks can be reserved through the Pala Environmental Department. Please contact us for more information at info@climatesciencealliance.org.

The Climate Science & Atmospheric Chemistry Traveling Trunk was created through a partnership with the NSF Center for Aerosol Impacts on Chemistry of the Environment.
