Come be a part of a special, new course at Ao Tawhiti! Kate and Zack will examine both the science and social science issues surrounding climate change. This isn't just a science course, or a social science course. It's a course about climate change, and climate change is a complex issue that involves many fields of knowledge.

What's the difference between climate and weather?
Why is Earth's current period of warming different from other periods of warming in its geological history?
Why is the climate changing?
How do scientists gather data about our changing climate?
What impacts is climate change having on people, flora, and fauna?
What future impacts will climate change have?
What personal actions can we take to live more sustainably and reduce the effects of climate change?

This is a term-long course. It runs for the entire duration of Term 3.

LAs: ZACW and KATA.
