Curious Climate Schools

Answering students' questions about climate change

You asked and we answered.

Over the last three years, schools from across Tasmania have been sending us their questions about climate change.
Our team of climate scientists, conservation biologists, fire scientists, chemists, lawyers, engineers, psychologists, social scientists, oceanographers, Indigenous knowledge specialists and health experts, have answered more than 600 of your questions!
You can find answers to questions by searching for a particular topic, or looking at the questions we've organised into themes: most askedlooking ahead & taking action
Or you can find out what questions each class asked, or look up an expert for all their answers.
We have added some new resources this year for students and teachers in our Toolkit. Here you can find information about the science of climate changeimpacts of the climate crisis, how to navigate feelings about climate change and ways to take individual and collective action

These sections are based on our research into what kinds of questions students asked most often over the last 3 years. There are also ideas for teachers about how you can use the information on Curious Climate Schools in class. Have fun exploring!

If you are a teacher and are keen for your class to participate in 2024, let us know at [email protected] and we will get back to you with more information.
