North East pupils get eco lessons during Climate Week
Students from North East schools will today be given first-hand experience of climate change.

As part of Climate Week, which runs until March 18, they will have the opportunity to experience climate change science first hand in a working laboratory, thanks to Durham Universitys Climate Change Schools Project and the Tipping Points project.

Tipping point is a research venture based at Durhams Institute of Hazard, Risk & Resilience (IHRR).

The students are from St Anthonys Girls School in Sunderland and All Saints VA Church of England School in Stockton. The aim is to give students a broader understanding of climate change via a hands-on experience, using microscopes to examine fossils and analyse sediment samples.

During the sessions, the pupils will meet scientists who work on climate change research projects, take part in pollen analyses which can explain past climate change and experience a working research laboratory.

Both schools are members of the Climate Change Schools Project, an award-winning educational programme based at the Science Learning Centre North East.

The project aims to put climate change at the heart of the national curriculum and encourages schools to work with their local community to spread knowledge of and take positive action on climate change messages.
