Camarillo, Calif., June 13, 2012 – CSU Channel Islands (CI) will hold its first Summer Climate Science Institute and Camp, which will bring together NASA scientists, climate science experts, local teachers and students for seven days of learning about climate change and the science behind it.

The Teacher Institute kicks off Monday, June 18. Fifteen science teachers from the Oxnard Union High School District will work with internationally renowned climate scientists and curriculum resource developers throughout the week to better understand climate change and how to incorporate NASA satellite data, research and curriculum in the classroom.

The Student Summer Camp will bring 55 Oxnard Union High School District students to the CI campus Monday, June 25, and Tuesday, June 26, for climate science instruction and self-guided scientific inquiry.

The Summer Institute and Camp are funded by a $593,000 grant from NASA that aims to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. CI was one of only 14 institutions across the nation awarded funding through NASA’s Minority University Research and Education Program.
