If you’re yearning for free, accessible science content that can be integrated into your classrooms or programs AND want to enjoy the presentation from your own home, then look no further than the COSEE-OS “ROLE Model” Webinar series. Tomorrow’s engaging presentations focus on the complex science of the atmosphere and the role of aerosols in climate. Join us online tomorrow (Weds. November 3), 7-8pm Eastern Time! [Sign up now!] Part 1: Dr. Carolyn Jordan (University of New Hampshire) will explain what aerosols are, provide educational resources about them, and will use them as a basis for explaining how models are critical tools for understanding climate. She’ll also describe some of her own experiences teaching the public about her research.
Part 2: Kate Leavitt (Seacoast Science Center, Rye NH) will share her experiences taking a concept map of the complex work of an aerosol scientist and using it to train center staff to create activities for young children.
Even if you don’t know the first thing about aerosols, this webinar will be helpful towards your understanding of climate science, and how to break down scientific topics using pedagogical tools such as concept mapping. We hope you can join us for this unique, interactive experience!
