STEM Lesson: The Latest Projections for Climate Change from the Recent IPCC AR6 Report

STEM Lesson: The Latest Projections for Climate Change from the Recent IPCC AR6 Report

The long-awaited Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was just released this past August. The report integrates the most recent research on climate from over 14,000 studies and makes recommendations on humanity’s courses of action. Some of the results are expected — the Earth’s surface temperature is continuing to rise — but some unusual trends and projections are also emerging. Michael Wysession, a professor of geophysics at Washington University in St. Louis, will summarize and explain the latest results, implications, and paths forward for humanity.

Career Connection: Busting Myths about Teaching High School Science

Career Connection: Busting Myths about Teaching High School Science

Did you know that teachers in the United States rate their lives better than all other occupation groups, trailing only physicians? Did you know mid-career science teacher salaries typically range between $60,000 and $100,000? Did you know you can get a job almost anywhere in the U.S. or abroad as a chemistry, physics, or math teacher? Behind every advance in medicine or technology is a science teacher who left a lasting impression. We'll bust some myths about teaching high school science and show you how to have a rewarding science career inspiring young minds!

STEM Activity: Let’s Go with the Flow

STEM Activity: Let’s Go with the Flow

Let’s explore the dynamic properties of complex fluids. Students will create their own polymer solution and then investigate the flow properties of this non-Newtonian fluid. The challenge will be to determine the best ‘recipe’ that creates a solution with the greatest flow potential.
