Now in its second year, ClimeTime programs across the state of Washington continue to educate K-12 teachers about climate science and provide them with the tools needed to share this information in their classrooms.
This week, Grist Magazine featured ClimeTime in an article titled How a program in Washington State is bringing climate change into the classroom. The article highlights the importance of educating teachers on the impacts of climate science in the hopes that this knowledge will trickle down to the younger generations, making those students more aware of climate impacts.
ClimeTime is a state-led network for climate science learning that helps teachers and their students understand climate science issues affecting Washington communities.
All across the state, hundreds of Washington science teachers continue to participate in professional development to strengthen their skills in teaching climate science to their students. Hands-on experiences and a series of professional development activities are helping teachers incorporate climate science into their classrooms to help youth understand climate science and promote a thriving and sustainable environment.
