CLEAN Interactive Webinars for Secondary Level Science Educators

This series has already taken place. You can access the free Screencast recordings from the pages linked below.

Join us for monthly interactive webinars on topics and resources in climate change science. Climate change issues are evolving quickly and are constantly in the news, which is why educators and students find them to be relevant and interesting. On the other hand, keeping ourselves up to date becomes challenging. This monthly series will explore current topics and resources for teaching these topics in the classroom, presented by educators and scientists active in the field.

Sessions run from 7-9pm Eastern time. You may attend as many sessions as you like. Interactive webinars have a limit of 15 participants. There is no registration fee, but registration is required to save a space. Because of limited space, please be sure you can commit before registering. Registration closes when the spaces fill or one week before each event, whichever comes first.
