Once a year, scientists at the Columbia Climate School’s main campus for climate and earth science research come out to share their work and discoveries via talks, tours, and hands-on experiments that are fun and engaging for the whole family. Although the event had to go virtual during the height of the pandemic, the campus’s doors are opening once again this year for an in-person Open House.
Attendees will learn about the current developments in the earth sciences, and about how our increasing understanding of the planet helps preserve its future. Different exhibits are aimed at different ages and educational levels, from elementary school-age children to college students to those well-versed in the earth sciences.
