Are you a middle-school or high school teacher wondering how to enhance your students’ understanding of climate issues? As a professional, are you curious to know which climate solutions really matter? Investigate the impacts of different climate solutions in real-time and explore the benefits, challenges and equity implications of a wide range of climate policies during a special hands-on professional learning workshop that will introduce you to En-ROADS.
En-ROADS is an inter-active, evidence-based global climate simulator that allows users to explore the impacts of specific policies—such as electrifying transport, pricing carbon, and improving agricultural practices—on hundreds of factors like energy prices, temperature, air quality, and sea level rise.
En-ROADS Presenters: Tom Rawson, a retired middle school science teacher, climate educator and En-ROADS Climate Ambassador; and Jane Heinze-Fry, environmental educator, Special Projects Director for the Wade Institute for Science Education, and En-ROADS Climate Ambassador
Date: Thursday, April 20th, 6:30-8:30 PM
Location: Westfield State University, Wilson Hall, Rm. 130

This April 20th introduction to En-ROADS is offered to the general public, but with the needs of secondary school educators particularly in mind. Later in 2023, a second phase of this initiative will offer training for interested educators on how to use En-ROADS in middle and high school classrooms.
