EdGCM - 3.1

EdGCM permits teachers and students to explore the fundamentals of climate science utilizing tools identical to those used in major climate research programs. Many simple climate experiments are possible (e.g. How does the sun warm the planet?), but, it is also possible to conduct in-depth investigations of current events, in near real-time, as they are being studied by climate scientists. EdGCM comes with some pre-prepared scenarios for investigating a variety of interesting climate issues (global warming, ice ages), but teachers can, also, easily construct their own scenarios to satisfy curricular requirements. EdGCM easily scales for use at levels from middle school to graduate school, making it a unique tool for linking research to the classroom. Our future plans involve the creation of the EdGCM Cooperative, a network of researchers and educators actively collaborating on climate research projects.
