This free NASA-sponsored live event will examine climate impacts in the Southwest.   A Q&A period with local climate scientists and educators will follow an interactive virtual presentation by Dr. Fred Lipschultz, from the US Global Change Research Program, and an introduction to regionally focused teaching and citizen science resources by Dr. Minda Berbeco of the National Center for Science Education. We will accommodate up to 100 participants.

The National Climate Assessment summarizes the impacts of climate change on the United States, including aspects of earth science, biology, human health, engineering, technology, economics, and policy. Since the National Climate Assessment incorporates many disciplines, connections to standards may be found across the curriculum.  Join us to explore how this cutting-edge regional climate science can be integrated with your own classroom practice.
