The Iowa Climate Festival is an educational opportunity to learn about climate science through discussions and hands-on experimentation.  All events will be held in the UI Museum of Natural History's Biosphere Discovery  Hub on October 15, 2016.

The Iowa Climate Symposium (2:00-3:30 PM) will focus on the theme of “Looking Towards the Future” and will feature Prof. Jerry Schnoor speaking on the recent Paris Agreement, Dr. Chris Anderson discussing climate change impacts on Iowa and strategies for mitigation, and Brenda Nations presenting opportunities for more sustainable living and communities. Bring your questions to the panel discussion that will follow the presentations.

The Climate Science Fair (3:30-5:00 PM) provides fun for all ages. Conduct hands-on climate science experiments on energy efficiency, greenhouse gases, particles in the air, cloud formation, ocean acidification, and more! Learn how to reduce your environmental impact, bring your questions, and join us for an ice cream social!

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the Pentacrest Museums in advance at 319-335-2010.
