Want to discuss global climate with a Smithsonian researcher or curator? Take part in the Smithsonian Online Education Conference on Climate Change from September 29 through October 1, just in time for Earth Science Week 2009, which celebrates the theme â€œUnderstanding Climate.â€
In addition to interacting with Smithsonian experts in both general interest sessions and sessions designed especially for teachers, you can explore Smithsonian research and collections related to the evidence, impact, and response to climate change. Alongside Smithsonian scientists and curators, you also can look at issues surrounding climate change from the perspectives of science, history, and art.
Registration is free and open to everyone. Conference sessions are recorded and archived so you can replay them at any time. To learn more or register, please visit http://www.smithsonianeducation.org/educators/professional_development/conference/2009/climate_change/index.html.
