Climate Science & Code

Students research a fact about the Earth's climate, engaging with the work of scientists and artists in response to climate change. Students take their research and plan a video sharing their fact. Videos can be about understanding climate changes and its effects, public responses to the climate change effects, how climate change impacts everyday life and what actions can you take to make a difference.
