4th Scientix Conference Teachers Workshop entitled 

'Science investigations, triggers and tools to use for exploring the Ocean and Climate with children 8-12 years of age'

Understanding of the links between the ocean and weather and climate are essential as we engage students on the concepts of climate change. We will discuss the science of climate change and how it impacts the ocean, the weather, and life on Earth, as well as bridging the gap between science and society.
 In this session we will demonstrate some simple investigations, triggers and tools that can be used for children to explore these concepts and help build science and mathematics skills, while also exploring communication, creativity, the role of active citizenship and further Explorers Education Programme Resources.
