How can a tree change climate change? What’s so special about an axolotl? What can we do?
This interactive online program explores some of the ways the world is changing and how we can influence these changes to make our world a healthier, more sustainable place for us and other living things.
Learners explore a variety of local and global changes, animal adaptations, habitats, and ecosystems and reflect on the diversity of life. Through exciting science demonstrations, participants will better understand climate change and its impacts.
Students then adventure through Science World on a virtual field trip and investigate close-up some of the amazing living organisms currently on exhibition investigating their basic needs and adaptations to assess the impact environmental changes have on their survival.
The class will collectively investigate how they can help protect animals from climate change together and pledge to take individual and collective action.
Note: Students are required to have the listed SFACW Worksheet printed for the session.

- We shape the local environment, and the local environment shapes who we are and how we live.
- Local actions have global consequences, and global actions have local consequences. Individuals have rights and responsibilities as global citizens.
