Atmospheric science students at the 2017 Youth Environmental Summit

Atmospheric Sciences students and faculty present at Youth Environmental Summit

Two Lyndon Atmospheric Sciences students, Sarah Sickles and Lauren Cornell, joined Dr. Hanrahan at the Vermont Youth Environmental Summit in Barre, VT.  The group gave a presentation called, “It’s Our Climate – Let’s Talk About It,” which was followed by an open discussion with middle and high school students.  The Lyndon group also hosted a table during an exhibition and scavenger hunt which allowed ATM students to practice the important skill of climate change communication.  They had the opportunity to visit with local youth who shared their concerns and wanted to learn more about climate change mitigation.
