Description

The main objective of this workshop is to describe the content of a freshman-level course on combating climate change (z.umn.edu/ee1701) at the University of Minnesota, in order to promote it in high schools through our College in the Schools (CIS) program.

This course has burgeoning enrollment as students realize that our use of fossil fuels is causing rapid changes in the climate, with consequences that are unimaginable.
