Climate Kids: A Fun, Accessible Approach to Understanding Climate Change and Sustainability

Abstract: Learn how you can use NASA's award-winning Climate Kids website to enrich your own efforts. The Climate Kids website engages upper-elementary and middle school-aged children in Earth science through interactive games, hands-on activities, fun articles, and short videos. The Climate Kids web site has been selected as one of the American Library Association's "Best Web Sites of Kids". With numerous resources for parents and teachers, Climate Kids has something for everyone.

Bio: Nancy Leon provides leadership for the Climate Kids team. She and her team at JPL are committed to reaching children at the beginning of the educational pipeline and awakening their interest in science. In addition to the Climate Kids web site, she and her team are responsible for the NASA Space Place web site and the NASA/NOAA SciJinks site. Nancy pioneered the creation of the Space Place web site over 15 years ago when there was no single NASA page geared at the elementary school audience. She and her team have also developed several cutting edge educational apps including Images of Change and Space Place Prime.
