New video about the Washington’s ClimeTime initiative features CIG scientist

CIG’s Lead Scientist for Science Communication, Heidi Roop, was featured in a new video about Washington State’s ClimeTime effort which aims to bring climate science to every K-12 classroom in Washington state. CIG partnered with the non-profit, Washington Green Schools, to deliver STEM seminars to over 250 teachers between August 2018 and June 2019. Each seminar explored different climate impacts, worked with teachers to help them understand and interpret regionally-relevant climate data and emphasized how schools and students can engage in meaningful climate solutions. With continued funding from Washington State, the effort will continue over the next two years.
