NSF Launches New Climate Change Education Partnership Program Print E-mail

On 10 September 2010, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced 15 awardees who will take the lead in planning collaborations across the United States as part of the Climate Change Education Partnership (CCEP) program. This program will connect climate scientists, experts in theories on how people learn science, and formal and informal education experts, with the goal of increasing public understanding of global climate change and preparing the next generation of scientists and educators. Each partnership will work to identify and disseminate scientifically accurate educational resources, with the end goal being that the materials developed through this program will be available to help both classroom teachers and informal educators address students' questions about climate change from a solid scientific basis.  For more information, please see the NSF press release at http://nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=117685&org=NSF&from=news.
