This workshop enables students to:
- Explain the causes and some of the impacts of climate change
Describe ways in which individuals can make a positive difference through the choices they make
Discuss how we, as a global community, should respond to the climate challenge, justifying our decision making
We've designed the workshop to help teachers cover the following subject areas:
KS3 Geography - The use of natural resources and how the climate has changed.
KS3 Science - The production of carbon dioxide by human activity and the impact on climate. How organisms affect, and are affected by, their environment. Fuels and energy resources.
GCSE Geography - Changing weather and climate - the causes, consequences of and responses to extreme weather conditions and natural weather hazards, recognising their changing distribution in time and space. The spatial and temporal characteristics, of climatic change and evidence for different causes, including human activity.
AQA GCSE Geography - 16. The evidence and reasons for human induced climate change. The effects of climate change on people and environment. Managing climate change: Mitigation and Adaptation
GCSE Science - Positive and negative human interactions with ecosystems, anthropogenic causes of climate change, potential effects of, and mitigation of, increased levels of carbon dioxide and methane on the Earth’s climate, renewable and non-renewable energy sources used on Earth, changes in how these are used.
AQA GCSE Combined Science - 126.96.36.199 Global warming, 188.8.131.52 Human activities which contribute to an increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, 184.108.40.206 Global climate change (effects), 6.1.3 National and global energy resources.
KS3 and KS4 Citizenship - The rights, roles and responsibilities of citizens, the role of parliament and democracy, the role of citizens and parliament in holding those in the power of government to account, actions citizens can take in democratic and electoral processes to influence decisions locally, nationally and beyond, the roles played by public institutions and voluntary groups in society, the ways in which citizens work together to improve their communities
This workshop is accredited under the British Science Association’s CREST Awards scheme and goes towards a Discovery Award. In order to gain the award it is also necessary for the students to have completed some of the suggested pre and post visit activities provided upon booking.
