UNL Online Climate Research Applications Course

Status Report From: NASA Education Office
Posted: Friday, August 17, 2012

image The University of Nebraska-Lincoln, or UNL, offers K-12 science educators the opportunity to take part in the development of a new online master's-level course in Climate Research Applications funded by the NASA Innovations in Climate Education program.

Climate change issues will serve as a context to develop research questions and design a discrete, locally oriented research project through which they define a problem, analyze data and develop conclusions to potentially impact decision-making in their communities. Educators are encouraged to utilize this opportunity to expand their knowledge of climate change, as well as their available tools for educating students and their local communities. Participants will earn three graduate-level credit hours through UNL, as well as a stipend to cover tuition costs.

Applications are due Aug. 20, 2012.

Questions about this opportunity should be directed to Christine Haney Douglass at chaney3@unl.edu.
