Students can get their climate questions answered by top scientists
Your students can ask a question to the leading experts working every day to solve the impacts of climate change.
Battelle’s second Innovations in Climate Resilience conference (#ICR23) will be held March 28-30, 2023, in Columbus, Ohio and offers an exceptional opportunity for students to receive expert answers to their climate questions. This event brings together distinguished scientists, engineers, policymakers, academics, and industry leaders to collaborate on innovative solutions addressing climate change impacts.
As a way to include students’ voices, Battelle is accepting questions from teachers and students. Climate experts will answer these questions at the conference, and the recorded Q&A sessions will be available on Battelle’s YouTube page. The list of keynote speakers is available on the event website, and students can submit their questions to a specific speaker if they wish.
Those who want to submit a question can do so by text, audio, or video. The deadline for submissions is March 20, 2023, so don’t miss this opportunity to have your questions answered by the top experts in the field of climate resilience.
Educators know that learning is at its best when students can find a personal connection to their work. Questions could begin with areas of science your students think could be applied for a solution to climate change.
The keynote speaker bios offer details about each expert’s professional connections and areas of focus.
Example: How does the work that Dr. Tammy Ma at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on the physics of energy production impact climate change?
