How Do Educators Feel About SubjectToClimate?

Our platform is made by teachers, for teachers.

David Kramer

"SubjectToClimate has first-rate resources that are so easy to explore, set up in a way that makes it exceedingly easy to share with my busy teaching colleagues…on a moment's notice!"

Noah

"Lots of lessons! I need to spend more time perusing the site to find and use more resources. We loved using the calculator as students were shocked to see their results."

Andrew Kirk

“I have truly enjoyed the variety of resources available from StC. I am taking over the Environmental Science classes…and will be revamping the entire curriculum with lessons from StC at the core.”

Cari Gallagher

"My students have enjoyed learning about Green Spaces, Climate Action, and Environmental Justice. It has been incredible witnessing interdisciplinary connections evolve in our class."

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."
