THIS YEAR'S COMPETITION WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN OCTOBER. CURRENTLY, WE ARE PREPARING TO OFFER ART & SCIENCE MENTOR WORKSHOPS.

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.

Art & Science Mentor Workshops

These workshops are designed for adult mentors working with K-12 students in Massachusetts, Kansas, and Missouri.

  • September 28, 2019 - Tsongas Industrial History Center - Lowell, MA
  • October 11, 2019 - Union Station - Kansas City, MO
  • October 12, 2019 - Boys & Girls Club - Topeka, KS
  • October 19, 2019 - Worcester Art Museum - Worcester, MA

During these hands-on workshops, mentors will learn how to educate youth about the science of extreme weather through artistic expression. The workshops will improve mentors' understanding of both science and art. Workshop participants will receive honoraria or staff time reimbursement, lunch, snacks, and art supplies. There is limited space for the workshops, so we are asking anyone who is interested to complete an application by September 15, 2019. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by September 18, 2019. If you have any questions, please contact us by email: coolscience@uml.edu.
