Exploring the Environment - Global Climate ChangeA NASA INNOVATIONS IN CLIMATE EDUCATION (NICE) PROJECT.
The Center for Educational Technologies at Wheeling Jesuit University has received funding from NASA Innovations in Climate Education to update, enhance, and expand the Exploring the Environment® (ETE) problem-based learning modules. The updated Exploring the Environment-Global Climate Change modules provide an authentic, problem-based context for students to explore climate science issues. Improvements to the existing modules include teacher and student use of NASA satellite images and remote sensing data to investigate these climate change topics—Global Temperatures, Drought, Ice Caps and Sea Levels, Human Health Effects, Volcanoes, and Biodiversity.
