NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – In-depth climate science curriculum and activities will be showcased for Oklahoma’s classroom teachers at the state’s first teacher climate summit.

Applications are being accepted for the summit, planned July 28-29 at the National Weather Center in Norman.

Hosted by Oklahoma Mesonet, the Oklahoma Project Learning Tree and Oklahoma Forestry Services, the summit will provide educators with climate educational tools they can use in their classrooms. The event will feature tours of the National Weather Service offices and presentations from climate science researchers from Oklahoma universities.

National Project Learning Tree and the University of Florida have developed the new secondary education module to help educators teach about climate impacts on forest ecosystems, the role of forests in sequestering carbon and strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing conditions.
