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 our 7th annual climate change artwork competition, we are asking young artists to address one of the following prompts with their artwork

On April 5, 2013, 24 Massachusetts students from third grade through high school were awarded certificates for winning the Cool Science artwork competition to educate the public about climate change issues.  The contest’s top six entries are displayed throughout the region on 9-foot-long placards on Lowell Regional Transit Authority (LRTA) buses and inside buses and terminals. Second-place and honorable-mention entries are featured under Winning Artwork. Please see the University’s news team coverage of the event!
