Teachers needed for survey on Climate Science

In response to the need for a better informed and scientifically literate populace, the University of California Museum of Paleontology (UCMP) and the National Center for Science Education (NCSE) received funding from the Moore Foundation to develop a web-based resource for educators and the general public that will provide rigorously-vetted, non-partisan, scientific information on global change, specifically how the earth’s natural systems are changing.

We need your help! We would like to have a better sense of how teachers (at all grade levels, in both formal and informal settings) view global change, the importance of teaching it, and the resources available for doing so. We also want to know if they are not teaching about global change.

I’m asking you to please help us find teachers to take an anonymous survey. Our survey is being conducted by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) and should take them less than 15 minutes, but will help hundreds of thousands of educators and students for years to come.

To participate in the survey, they should follow this link:


If you have any questions about the survey, please email

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and time with us. We (UCMP, NCSE, and BSCS) will thoughtfully review all responses and use the information to develop the best web-based resource on global change issues possible.

Thanks so much for any help you can give us.
