The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will be offering K-12 science educators the opportunity to take part in the development of a new online Masters level course in Climate Research Applications funded by the NASA NICE 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 community. Dr. Russanne Low encourages educators 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 3 graduate level credit hours through UN-L, as well as a stipend to cover tuition costs. Please contact Christine Haney Douglass for more information.
