Climate Change Partnership

This program is full for the 2015-2016 school year!

Supported by a generous grant from Sun Trust Foundation

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is inviting interested teachers in the Baltimore region to participate in a school-based partnership focused on climate change for students in grades 4 through 8.

The climates of the world are changing at an alarming rate and we can see these changes in ecosystems around us. With collective action, we can help reduce the negative impact of our everyday activities on climate. This partnership program has been developed to encourage, facilitate, and support positive student actions related to climate change.

The Partnership is in support of the Zoo’s mission to inspire and educate people to join with it in active support and conservation of wildlife and wild places. Through this partnership, teachers and students become active agents for change as they conduct classroom energy audits and develop action plans for reducing their collective carbon emissions.

Space in the program is limited, so reserve your spot now for the 2015-16 School Year!

Contact Christina Thompson at 443-552-5303 for more information.

Partnership includes:

  • Reimbursement for transportation to the Zoo (up to $300)
  • Free Climate Change ZOOlab for 25 students (about 60 minutes)
  • Recommended pre-activities to use in the classroom before students participate in their ZOOlab
