Climate Change & Ecological Footprint

Mosa Mack’s Climate Change unit focuses on the greenhouse effect, the responsible gases, and the impact of human activities. Students will be led through a series of 3 activities, including an inquiry-based climate mystery, a greenhouse gas model, and a design challenge, all using project-based approaches. In the engineer extension, students will analyze environmental data and design a solution to decrease their carbon footprint.
