YEP! (Youth Educating the Public) is a Science and Media Making initiative through a NASA funded education project: Climate Change Education: Science, Solutions, and Education in an Age of Media. For middle and high school students, climate change is an issue that has always been present in their lives. During the Summer 2011 students participated in a 5 week project which outlined climate concepts that are commonly discussed but not necessarily widely understood.
Fifteen Cambridge students and three UMass Lowell Interns created media to transmit and clarify what they learned about the current findings in climate change science for Cambridge residents. This project is a pilot project and will run it's second session Summer 2012.
