NASA Climate Action Grant

Photos from the Montshire’s “Empowerment Through Climate Action” in which middle school-aged youth (grades 5-8) will use the Montshire’s 110-acre campus as a living laboratory to evaluate the carbon sequestration potential of various meadow and forest habitats.

Data collected “on the ground” by students will then be compared to NASA satellite data that uses advanced technology to measure and calculate carbon sequestration from space. A key deliverable of the project will be the development and evaluation of a new climate science curriculum for both homeschool students and visiting public school classes.
