The Climate Kids “Oceans Traveling Trunk” – a demo and presentation

These traveling trunks provide much needed resources for San Diego educators to be empowered to teach climate impacts. Educators are able to reserve traveling trunks through the Climate Kids online platform, pick up the trunks locally, and fully deliver the modules in their classroom. Trunks are coupled with online resources and provide step-by-step instructions on how teachers can analyze data, make broader implications to what the data means, and provide age appropriate action items students can take to ensure their climate resilience.

Alex Warneke, Deputy Director, Climate Science Alliance
Alex is committed to a life of inspiring others to view science through a more dynamic and empowering lens. Alex obtained her M.Sc. in Chemical Ecology from San Diego State University and most recently resided as a Science Programs Manager and Marine Scientist for the National Park Service. As an ecologist, storyteller, and community engager, she has spanned critical boundaries between stakeholders in education, academia, non-profit, and government to translate the most current scientific bodies of work in ways that are accessible and inclusive. She is a strong proponent of unconventional science communication and extending the broader impacts of science to the public using the outlets of art, digital media, education, and citizen science. As Deputy Director for the Alliance, her hope is that through her work and experience she can get the world to think differently about how we connect and impact the thriving ecosystem around us and commit to fostering a more resilient future.
