How does the greenhouse effect work? How do we know the temperatures on the planets around other stars? All these questions can be studied thanks to the ClimateApp, an interactive web tool that creates a simple model of the atmosphere. We will show you how to use this tool in the classroom and we will go through the educational resources we’ve developed around it. Lots of potential for discoveries with your students! Note: the ClimateApp and the educational resources are available in English and French.
