Resources for teachers on teaching climate science in Science for Public Understanding from CPDN, University of Oxford.
Science for Public Understanding
These materials provide many opportunities for independent research and for the application of ‘Ideas about Science’ within the ‘Science for Public Understanding’ specification.
Global warming and climate change are topics which link together the earlier topics on ‘Using Fuels and Electricity Supply’ with ‘Radiation’. They provide opportunities to use almost all the ‘Ideas about Science’.
