Virtual Teacher on Climate Change

Audubon centers in three states have recently installed kiosks that allow internet-savvy children the ability to learn about climate change. These kiosks have a global warming quiz, a crystal ball that reveals how rising temperatures are affecting birds across the country and the option to email users a postcard reminder about climate change featuring an image of an animal that is at risk of extinction because of global warming. The kiosks teach children about actions they can take in order to combat climate change and also reminds them of the positive contributions they are already making towards reducing climate change. Even though one of these kiosks is not yet located in South Carolina all the information can be viewed at the kiosk website.
