Today, NYSCI unveiled a new project to boost climate change education in New York City schools.
The two-year project, funded with a grant from Deutsche Bank Climate Change Advisors, is called My Carbon Footprint. It will result in a new set of educator resources as well as a series of student-produced exhibits for the online Virtual Hall of Science, where NYSCI is exploring the educational potential of virtual environments.
Students will gain experience designing for both digital and real environments, collaborating through social networks, and practicing basic 3D modeling, while helping to develop a climate change curriculum that will roll-out in NYC classrooms in Fall 2011.
