Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
In 2017-2018, students in the senior elective, Atmospheric Science, at Marymount School, created an implemented the Global Survey on Youth Perspective on Global Warming and Climate Change, which sought to determine if teenagers believe global warming is naturally induced, human induced, or both, and to uncover what local and global evidence leads teenagers to conclude that the Earth’s average temperature is increasing (or not). Over 700 students worldwide complete the survey, and the results were surprising.
With the recent uptick in student interest in climate change and global warming, the class will conduct the survey again, to determine if teenagers opinions have changed over the past two years. Come learn how your students can participate in the survey. For the results of the 2017-2018 survey, visit: weather.marymountnyc.org
