High Tech High Students Partner with Climate Science Alliance to Develop Climate Kids Drought Module


The Climate Science Alliance was proud to collaborate with students at High Tech High - Point Loma this past semester on their “Out of the Box” Project. Check out some of the deliverables from the student’s projects here!

The Climate Science Alliance was proud to collaborate with students at High Tech High - Point Loma this past semester on their “Out of the Box” Project. Earlier this Fall, students sought to address the seventeen goals set by the United Nations to help the world achieve a better and sustainable future for all. These goals address global challenges we all face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.

To address these goals, biology and humanities students in the 11th-grade at High Tech High - Point Loma worked alongside the Climate Science Alliance and other nonprofits to help make sustainable change on a local level in a project called “Out of the Box.” Working in groups of five, students met with their community partners, interviewed them on the problem they’re trying to solve, and worked to develop an educational resource for these groups to use.

The Climate Science Alliance Team worked with students, Chloe Slack and Ben Tapiz, to create educational resources focused on Drought and Water Resource issues in the San Diego region. Here is what they had to say about the project and their experience:

“We chose to work with the Climate Science Alliance because climate change is a pressing issue that deserves our attention immediately. While we may not be able to reach the national or global audience that we’d like to, being able to create outreach materials for an organization doing so much to raise awareness within our city has been extremely rewarding.”

Their work will be integrated into our Climate Kids curriculum in 2020.

Great work High Tech High and thank-you for your commitment in fostering the next generation of environmental leaders!
