Empowering individuals and their communities to engage in solutions to climate change.
Climate Generation’s Summer Institute for Climate Change Education is a three-day climate change education conferencestructured to allow time for learning and networking. During the first two virtual days hosted by Climate Generation, educators can select from keynote presentations and concurrent workshops. During the third day, educators will attend a cohort workshop facilitated and hosted by a regional cohort leader to focus on place-based climate change education and the need for ongoing support throughout the year. Cohort days may be in-person or online, depending on educator and cohort leader needs in that region. Each group of 20-50 educators will explore local impacts, actionable solutions, connections to local experts, and planning and networking.
Dates: July 17 & 18, 2023, plus one day on July 19th, 20th, or 21st

Indiana High School Regional Science Bowl
Since 1991, the Department of Energy’s National Science Bowl kicks off Regional Science Bowls across the country to find the brightest student teams who then compete to win the national title in Washington, DC (around April – May) and encourage careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Teams of 4-5 students answer fast-paced questions about biology, chemistry, earth and space science, physics, energy, and math. Teams have an adult Coach who acts as an advisor and coach (this could be a teacher of the school, alumni, or parent). Adult volunteers with varied STEM backgrounds assist with the event, letting students meet current and retired professionals in the field, as well as meet other STEM-interested students from around our state. For more details scan the QR code at right or visit https://science.osti.gov/wdts/nsb.
Registration is typically between October and December. Coaches may pre-register their school without having to initially identify the team’s students. Approved, pre-registered schools will be guaranteed a spot for one team in the Regional and the coach will have until mid-December to submit remaining student data and consent forms for final team approval. Should more space become available, additional teams from the same school can be submitted.
In the past, the National Science Bowl Coordinators have hosted several Coaches Clinics. If a school is still unsure about participating, this is an excellent forum for prospective coaches to learn more.
The Indiana High School Regional is held usually on the last Saturday of February. It has historically been at Eli Lilly and Company’s Corporate Center campus in Indianapolis, IN; however, last year it was held virtually over Zoom due to the pandemic. We are continuing to monitor the situation to determine if we will return to an in-person competition next year or stay with a virtual competition.
