5 Steps for a STEAM City Kid:

1. Learn about the science of climate and weather.
2. Research the effects that carbon dioxide has on global warming.
3. Conduct climate and weather experiments in school and/or at home.
4. Create your own opinions, ideas and inventions.
5. Write about it with your teacher’s help, and we’ll publish your work!

Submit your own article for our free online April Magazine. It’s all about CLIMATE! CLICK HERE to read the information we posted about weather and climate issues in the news. Then, check out the examples we listed on this web page. You can choose to do a similar writing topic or project – or come up with your own! Work with your teacher and maybe friend at school or small group in class. You may choose a topic that goes along with what you are learning in school.
*Some people ignore scientists around the world. They choose to believe that climate change is not real. Things like this happen because there is a lot of information on the internet. Some of the information is NOT true. Even though there are websites, social media sites and videos that are fiction/opinions, people think it’s real. That’s why it is so important that you help us spread the word about important environmental issues. You are smart and need to find real facts so you can educate other kids and adults.
