Educators can participate in climate academy

Feb. 24, 2015--The University of Delaware College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment invites local educators to apply for the 2015 Climate Science Academy, hosted by Maryland and Delaware Climate Change Education Assessment and Research (MADE CLEAR).

The Climate Science Academy is a comprehensive program for teachers who want to learn the science of climate change and explore strategies for teaching climate science to their students. Online applications are being accepting through March 27.

Delaware adopted the Next Generation Science Standards in 2013, which include climate science topics. MADE CLEAR’s programs help science teachers learn about new climate change science resources to fulfill the standard requirements.

The academy program combines in-person sessions, webinars and independent work, with sessions held approximately once a month from April to August of 2015.
