Title: Using Estuary Data to Teach about Coastal Impacts of Climate Change - NERRS/NSC(NERRS Science Collaborative)
Status: Planned

The National Estuarine Research Reserve System has a proven track record of successfully transferring and translating reserve science to a broad suite of educators through teacher workshops. In recent years, teachers expressed a need for curriculum, data sets, and professional development related to climate change.


This grant enabled the Northeast reserves to develop and offer a series of high-quality teacher workshops focused on the story of climate change impacts on coastal habitats, using a variety of data collected at the reserves. The delivery of new and existing curricula armed over 75 teachers with the tools and confidence they needed to effectively bring the discussion of climate change into the classroom.
