Planning for Our Changing Climate

Saturday, May 4 | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Grades 6-12

Scientists warn about the threats that impacts of climate change—such as sea level rise and extreme temperatures—present to our health and our engineered infrastructure. What can and should be done to protect the health and safety of the public?

Join us as we share a number of educational offerings developed in collaboration with experts from the fields of science, engineering, and urban planning that help citizens consider the difficult decisions communities face in relation to the impacts of climate change. We’ll showcase a series of citizen science projects, co-created by high school students, local scientists, and urban planners, on topics such as air quality and extreme temperature—with a focus on planning healthier urban spaces in which to live and work. We’ll also highlight a number of tools, including live presentations and media, that help engage the public in decision-making under conditions of uncertainty. Lastly, you’ll take part in a deliberative forum around the subject of planning for sea level rise in Boston, and provide your feedback on a number of tools that can be easily adapted and implemented for formal education settings.

Museum of Science

The Museum takes a hands-on approach to science, engineering and technology, attracting about 1.5 million visitors a year via its programs and 700 interactive exhibits. Founded in 1830, the Museum was first to embrace all the sciences under one roof. Highlights include the Thomson Theater of Electricity, Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theater, Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, 3-D Digital Cinema and Butterfly Garden. Reaching 25,000 teens a year worldwide via the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, the Museum also leads a 10-year, $41 million National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network of science museums. The Museum’s “Science Is an Activity” exhibit plan has been awarded many NSF grants and influenced science centers worldwide. Its National Center for Technological Literacy® aims to enhance knowledge of engineering and technology for people of all ages and inspire the next generation of engineers, inventors, and scientists. The Museum is ranked #3 by Parents Magazine in its list of the country’s “Ten Best Science Centers." For more information, visit mos.org.
