Ch-ch-ch-changes in climate

17 Apr

Join RealClimateGW this Friday from 3-5pm  in the UHP Club Room as they display the project they have been working on in Houston Miller’s class all year.

The students in this Scientific Reasoning and Discovery class have built a Carbon Dioxide Sensor post to display real time data of the carbon dioxide concentration in the air around the GW campus. The sensor will also have an interactive screen for visitors of the post to learn more about climate change and its significance.

Come on out from 3 to 5pm to explore the reality that is climate change!
