Educators Invited To Climate Network

December 30th, 2016

Climate change affects both coastal and inland communities. The National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation (NNOCCI) is a community of practice that unites informal science educators, climate scientists and social scientists to better communicate this crucial science. Diana Burich, K-12 program coordinator, and Mindy Voss, education specialist, were recently accepted into this network. This growing network of informal science educators and climate and ocean scientists aim to work together to help communicate the facts on climate change and the effects it will have on our daily life — from rising seas to extreme weather events — as well as the effects on marine organisms.
