Summary:Funded by a National Science Foundation CAREER award, members of the University of Illinois Department of Atmospheric Sciences have designed a suite of atmospheric science learning modules for middle school students. The curriculum, which implements a flipped-classroom model, is cross-references with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. It introduces students to topics such as temperature, pressure, severe weather safety, climate, and air pollution through short instructional videos and critical thinking activities. A goal of this project is to provide middle school science educators with resources while fostering early development of math, science, and climate literacy.
