In November, Climate Science Alliance staff and partners shared the story of climate change with high school students at Mission Bay High School (MBHS). Climate Kids Ambassadors-MBHS was launched through a new partnership with key leaders, including Principal Ernest Remillard and science teacher, Steve Walters. In collaboration with partners Stay Cool, San Diego Coastkeeper, and Nos de Chita, we hosted a weeklong series of events where we engaged over 1,100 high school students.
Through thought-provoking presentations, hands-on science, and performing arts focused on climate change themes students learned about climate change impacts on natural resources and what they can do to help.
Mirroring the approach from Climate Kids-Mexico, these students are being trained to be part of the Climate Kids program at Pacific Beach Elementary school in 2017.
