How Plants Respond to Climate Change - Data Nuggets LTER Cross-Site Workshop
From Elizabeth Kochmanski
Who: Middle and high school teachers in Michigan and New England.
Hosted by: Data Nuggets, Kellogg Biological Station (KBS), and Harvard Forest Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Programs.
What: Plants play a key role in climate change – through photosynthesis they capture carbon from the air and capture it in their cells. But they also respond to climate, and can be indicators of this change. Let’s talk about current climate science and increase data literacy while getting experience with Data Nuggets! Data Nuggets are free classroom resources, co-designed by scientists and teachers, designed to build data literacy through analysis and visualization of authentic data. We’ll learn about the research from the Harvard Forest and KBS scientists, work independently on the Data Nuggets.
When: Thursday, February 11th , 3-5pm EST
Where: Online via Zoom, registration closed.
What’s in it for me: Hear from scientists about cutting-edge climate change research, gain access to resources and datasets, practice data analysis, and connect with exemplary science educators in your area.
