In March 2020 we're inviting you to join an expedition of discovery to find out what climate change is all about.
On this expedition you're going to become a climate scientist. Part of your mission is to build your own story using some easy to use tech tools. This will be an empowering and fun opportunity to become part of the solution to climate change.
Parents and Teachers Note: Climate change can be a difficult topic for students and teachers. We will aim to keep the science simple and to emphasise responses to climate change.
