Curious Climate Schools

Answering students' questions about climate change

Young people have a lot of questions about our changing climate. As climate change researchers, we want to help answer them.

Curious Climate Schools is a program run by researchers at the University of Tasmania to help Tasmanian school students get credible and up-to-date answers to all their questions about climate change.
