Climate Change

Our world is warming. Is that a problem?  During this workshop, your pupils will investigate the possible global consequences of climate change over the next 50 years, from sea level rise to drought.  Using a combination of discussion, animation and activities, pupils will investigate the greenhouse effect and the various sources and sinks.  The workshop culminates in an interactive quiz to test your pupil’s knowledge.
