PD2 - Riding the Climate Roller Coaster

Melbourne Gilrs' College

August 30, 2017 @ 9:30 AM

Riding the Climate Rollercoaster takes participants back over the last 4.6 billion years to find the drivers of climate change throughout geological time. In this workshop participants will learn about and discuss the impact climate fluctuations have had in the past as revealed by the rock record. This PD also examines the additional impact human activity is thought to have and the geological evidence for it. The PD provides guidance on how teachers and students can access raw data to evaluate the results for themselves.


At the completion of this workshop teachers and laboratory technicians will be equipped with background information and resources, including practical activities, to assist them. Aspects of the Victorian Curriculum for years 7-10 and VCE Environmental Science will be addressed.
