5. The CLEAN Collection was featured in the NESTA May Newsletter
by Tamara Ledley
The Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN) has developed and implemented a rigorous review process for online, open-access climate and energy education resources. The CLEAN Collection is currently comprised of 620+ high quality learning activities, videos, visualizations, and short demonstrations/experiments for grades 6-16. Each resource addresses the Climate Literacy Essential Principles and/or the Energy Literacy Principles. Five to seven classroom educators and scientists, including an expert in the resource topic, reviewed them for scientific accuracy, classroom-readiness, and technical quality. Reviewer comments are published along with the alignments to science education standards and the climate and energy literacy principles mentioned above. The CLEAN Collection is searchable by climate and energy key terms, grade level, and resource type. NOAA features the CLEAN Collection educational resources in the Climate.gov Teaching Climate portal. This portal recently won the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences’ Webby and People Choice awards in the Green category.
