EPA announces new climate change kit for high-school students
Submitted by US EPA NE Region
We are pleased to announce that EPA’s Climate Change Emission Calculator Kit (Climate CHECK) is now available!
Climate CHECK is a free, user-friendly, Excel-based kit that teaches high-school students about the science, drivers, and impacts of climate change and provides them with the knowledge, tools, and resources to increase climate-change awareness and to help them reduce greenhouse gas emissions at their school.
• Educates high-school students about climate change and greenhouse gas emissions,
• Estimates greenhouse gas emissions using built-in calculators and school-specific “activity data,” and
• Mitigates greenhouse gas emissions by providing resources and features designed to help students develop and implement a mitigation action plan.
To download Climate CHECK, go to http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/wycd/school.html and click on the link under “2. High school students check your school's climate impact.”
If you have any questions after reading through the instructions in the tool, please email us at ClimateCHECK (at-symbol) icfi.com, and don’t for get to register with us (per the instructions in the kit)!
