Students got a hands-on climate lesson at a new NASA-funded summer camp where youths and teachers learn together.The camp was the second part of a seven-day workshop that began with the teachers learning new techniques for instructing students last week.

CSU Channel Islands and NASA hosted the Promoting Educational Leadership Climate Science Summer Institute and Camp. It aims to bring together experts, local teachers and students, according to Bob Bleicher, program director.

“The teachers came in with an about average rating in their confidence to teach and understand the subject. They are at a 10 now,” Bleicher said. “That is what we wanted.”
