This student-centered inquiry consists of 2 parts to help make the concepts in climate change relevant and applicable to the student’s lives.

For Part 2, once all students have shared their findings, they are then tasked with a more project-based learning approach. They will use the engineering design process (also known as design thinking) to create something that answers their question regarding climate change.
