In a recent seminar, students were challenged to use their skills from their Natural Science and their Social Science class to manage the challenges of global warming. By using a computer simulation program, students were able to test the long-term climate impacts of policy decisions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Students used the C-ROADS simulator as a catalyst for their discussions.
The C-ROADS simulator is able to make predictions about the levels of future global warming.
During the seminar, students represented different countries and negotiated with each other in order to reach a global agreement to cut emissions and help finance those countries that might find these targets difficult to reach.
