AISL: Climate Science, Children, & the Media Forum Videos Available

March 23, 2022

On February 11, 2022, the National Science Foundation’s Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) hosted an NSF Design and Discovery Forum: Climate Science, Children, & the Media to stimulate a national conversation on the topic of climate science education for children ages 5-11. The online event explored the potential for the media industry to collaborate with the scientific community to create content that is scientifically accurate and effectively engages children with climate science. Panels of invited speakers and audience members discussed:

  • What media producers need to know about communicating climate science and the impacts of climate change
  • How to meaningfully engage historically underserved and underrepresented families in the creation of climate science-themed media
  • Successful science-media collaborations

Videos from this daylong event are available here.

A set of resources shared by panelists and audience members during the event are available here.
