C3: Communicating Climate Change
Communicating Climate Change through a Citizen Science Network
The Maryland Science Center and our research partners at the Baltimore Ecosystem Study are proud to join eleven science centers across the nation in the Association of Science and Technology Center’s C3: Communicating Climate Change Citizen Science project.
You too can be a scientist and take part a long term research study!
A Citizen Science Smartphone application is currently in development for 2011. Interested scientists may contact C3@marylandsciencecenter.org to be notified when the application is released to the public. There is no geographic or age restriction on participation.
The Urban Heat Island Effect (UHI) describes the temperature difference between a metropolitan area and the more rural landscape nearby. UHI is not an effect of climate change, but rather of human activity shaping our environment. One may ask, if we can make changes on a local scale, are we also responsible for changes globally? UHI provides a glimpse at what the world may look like with warmer temperatures.
