Through a series of lab-based activities and demonstrations, students will investigate the chemical reactions behind the carbon cycle.
Can science help solve the climate crisis?
What is the carbon cycle and how is human activity changing it? What impact is this having on our climate and our oceans. And how might science offer some solutions?
Through a series of lab-based activities and demonstrations students will investigate the chemical reactions behind the carbon cycle. They will discover how human activity is changing the movement of carbon through the cycle and the impact this is having on the atmosphere and the oceans. At the end of the workshop students will see a dramatic presentation of real satellite data displayed on our magnificent digital Science On A Sphere and learn how scientists are using this data to study the causes and impact of climate change.
This workshop isn’t available between 13 November – 22 December 2023. See details of our alternative seasonal workshops during this period.
