Here’s a sample from the November 2012 Update, these are ongoing or upcoming…
Climate Adaptation Mitigation E-Learning (CAMEL) is offering a free online Climate Change Continuing Education Symposium comprised of a series of weekly webinars. Each presenter will discuss a teaching resource and how to use it. The resources are designed for upper level education, but many can be modified for other levels or incorporated into hybrid teaching. Upcoming webinars are scheduled for Nov. 13, 20, 27, and Dec. 4.

(Nov. 25-Feb. 5, East Meadow Public Library, East Meadow, N.Y.)
The East Meadow Public Library is one of only ten libraries in the United States to be awarded the traveling exhibit Discover Earth: A Century of Change, which is made possible by the American Library Association, the National Center for Interactive Learning at Space Science Institute, the Lunar and Planetary Institute, and the National Girls Collaborative Project. This exhibit focuses on local Earth science topics – such as weather, water cycle, and ecosystem changes – as well as a global view of our changing planet. The primary message of the exhibition is that the global environment changes – and is changed by – the local environment of all exhibition-host communities. Interactive, multimedia displays allow exhibit visitors to interact with digital information, encouraging new perspectives on our planet.
The East Meadow Library will host a series of events to celebrate the opening day of the exhibition, Sunday, Nov. 25. Tours of the exhibit will be offered all day, as well as special programs running from 1:00pm-4:00pm. For more information on the exhibit and upcoming locations, please visit http://bit.ly/PVpOeL.
