Capital Climate Initiative Open House [Event]

2 May

The George Washington University Honors Program would like to cordially invite you to the open house of the Capital Climate Initiative. On May 3rd, from 10:30 am to noon, the students will be presenting their special topic final presentations on different aspects of Climate Change at the Honors Club Room. The purpose of our endeavor is to raise awareness and educate the local community on climate change and an individual’s impact on the global community. Topics will range from Climate Science to Sustainable Technology and Behavior, and you will have the opportunity to view, first-hand, what we have accomplished this year: our website (http://wiki.chem.gwu.edu/CapitalClimateInitiative/), and two versions of our CO2 sensors. (A standalone sensor that communicates with our website and a second, held within a miniature Washington Monument, that also indicates to local users the concentration visually.)

We welcome questions regarding the technology used, the measurements themselves, and the climate science context of the results.
