Visualizing Change Toolkit for Informal Educators Now Available


What if informal science educators could treat scientific data like an illustration in a great picture book—a visual that brings the story to life and even helps move it along? The Visualizing Change project has taken on this challenge, working with data scientists, social scientists, and science educators to craft and test tools for telling more effective stories about climate change and its impacts on the ocean. A new toolkit offers a wealth of resources for interpreting timely climate topics such as extreme weather, ocean acidification, and more – with images and scripts designed to work with a variety of digital display technologies, such as Science on a Sphere®, other spherical displays, flat screens, or hand held tablets. These tools are available to informal science institutions at no cost, thanks to a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Explore these new climate interpretation tools available at http://vischange.org/.
