Special Advisory to Science Educators
When it comes to the greenhouse effect, climate change & global warming;
for hands-on resources, be sure you know the difference between:
The flawed, faulty and faked demonstrations, labs and activities...



and the scientifically strong, vetted, authentic hands-on science demos

We have inquiries out to UNESCO regarding their interest in hands-on
education. Do they have any practical plans to connect with hands-on
science education that relates to climate change? On any or all continents.
We have been referred to a central department director; thusfar: no response.


UNESCO -- hands-on science education emphasis
"UNESCO believes that the best way to increase studentsí interest in
science-related subjects is by using teaching methods that appeal to
the curiosity and creativity that characterize all children. The use of
hands-on and inquiry-based activities develops team-working,
critical thinking and problem-solving skills."

UNESCO resources:
Environmental Education Activities for Primary Schools:
Suggestions for making and using low-cost equipment

Popularization of Science and Technology:
What Informal and Nonformal Education Can Do?
[1989]:
Contains enlightening analysis of education systems in several countries.


UN CC:Learn
UN CC:Learn is a partnership of 23 UN agencies launched in 2009 to offer services to
Member States, UN agencies and other development parties interested in designing
and delivering effective, results-oriented and sustainable learning on climate change.

   


Fun, active learning. Doing the science. Experiencing, proving it.
