About LMAC

Who we are and what we do.

The Learn More About Climate initiative is part of CU-Boulder's Office for University Outreach. The office puts the university's faculty scholarship and research into the hands of teachers, students, citizens, and policymakers. LMAC's goal is to extend the university's vast scientific expertise create an informed dialog about this critical global issue. The initiative represents departments and institutes from across the CU Boulder campus.

LMAC connects climate change experts with our local communities in the following ways:
  • Provide classroom visits from climate scientists and experts in-person and via skype.
  • Produce informative videos, making them available to view and download for free from this website.
  • Create original, teacher-tested curriculum addressing climate change topics that meet state education standards and STEM initiatives.
  • Produce live webinars in collaboration with CU-Boulder's climate science research institutes.
  • Collaborate with communities and school districts to support classroom and after-school activities that explore climate change topics.
Climate scientists have visited classrooms in these Colorado communities.
