Welcome to Cool Science

Our changing climate presents one of the most important challenges of the 21st century. Science helps us understand how the atmosphere has changed over time and how the future climate might impact our lives. Now, it’s your chance to teach others about the science of climate change through art. For this competition, we want students and teachers to choose one of the following questions to address with their artwork:
  • How does Carbon cycle through the atmosphere?
  • What do scientists see today that tells them the Earth's climate is changing?
  • How is climate change impacting Massachusetts?

The top six entries will receive a $100 gift card and will be featured as ads on the Lowell Regional Transit Authority (LRTA) buses.
