How Do Educators Feel About SubjectToClimate?

Our platform is made by teachers, for teachers.

Ashley Nelson

"My students loved the inquire, investigate, inspire format where they were able to gain exposure to topics, make a hands-on application of knowledge, and teach others what they learned. "

Dan Castrigano

"My students were stunned when they explored infographics from an StC resource. They didn't realize the extent to which inequality is connected to carbon emissions. It was like an awakening for them."

Amber Medina

"With StC resources, many of my students, for the first time, were exposed to the idea of building a relationship with nature. They loved learning about how we can build a more sustainable future."
