High School Students Get Served...

...an amazing day of climate science and public speaking training, that is!

Check out some highlights from ACE’s (not ACES… the climate bill... which most folks who write here at Watthead can speak to!) student presenter training.

On June 16, 20 high school students descended upon the newly opened (and LEED-fabulous) David Brower Center in downtown Berkeley, CA, for a jam-packed day of training, networking, and general amazing-ness.

A big thank you to the SSC for joining us and providing our students with powerful training and skill building!



If you want in for our next training, August 11th 2009, email Ashlee Jensen as soon as possible. You won’t want to miss it! (that’s ashlee.jensen@climateeducation.org) Below the fold is a bit more about what our training covers.

You can also watch many more videos from ACE on Youtube here.

By attending the training, students will: establish trust and a sense of community among fellow student trainees, observe student climate presentations, learn climate science, learn and practice answers to common questions (take skeptic questions in stride), learn effective outreach skills, practice creating their own Personal Narrative, learn Powerpoint / Keynote, and receive a DVD of ACE’s student climate presentation to take into the world. They will also be able to contact ACE whenever, wherever, for ongoing help and support.

Our student presenters are going on to give presentations on their own, in their high schools and in their communities.
