An Intro to Climate Science for Minnesotans

Date: 
Tuesday, February 6, 2018 to Thursday, February 8, 2018

Are you interested in learning more about the science behind climate change? Join atmospheric scientist Dr. Sam Potter for the second round of this two-night class to deepen your understanding of this hot-button topic! The first session will cover the basics of climate science, both historically and in the present day. The second session will focus on the impacts of climate change on Minnesota and the Midwest. Everyone is encouraged to attend -- topics will be presented for a general audience and no science degree is necessary. Attendance at both sessions (February 6th and 8th) is required unless you have permission from the instructor. Class runs from 6pm - 8:30 pm on February 6th and 8th.

Instructor: Dr. Sam Potter. Sam is a climate scientist currently living in the North Metro. He grew up in West Central Minnesota and got his bachelor's degree at University of Minnesota, Morris. He received a PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from Princeton University and worked as a climate science postdoctoral researcher and teacher at the University of Washington before moving back to Minnesota in 2016. He teaches about climate science and local impacts of climate change in the greater Metro Area.

 

There is a course fee of $30 per person and registration is available on the MN Master Naturalist website.
