One of CLEX’s aims is to promote climate and weather science to secondary school students of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) subjects. We do this by bringing together secondary teachers and climate scientists in Climate Classroom workshops that develop teaching resources using climate science that can be used in the Australian secondary school curriculum.
Welcome to all of our new students. We have held two inductions since our last newsletter and in both we had more than 20 new students dial in. Many of you are still offshore, however we are starting to hear of success stories when it comes to travel exemptions for international students.
In 2021, the Knowledge Brokerage Team has hit the ground running with a paper in ECR, Climate Classrooms at AMOS, a new CLEX prize for engagement, and an increasing number of external links to new and old stakeholders.
The challenges of 2020 have impacted our briefing notes but we combined forces with NESP ESCC to produce an impressive overview of climate sensitivity. Our mid-term review has invigorated the team and a science-teacher workshop is well underway for AMOS.
Luis Clemente Lopez Bravo attended his first AMOS meeting and took the opportunity to meet some Western Australian collaborators. It's an experience he highly recommends for new students.
A lot has happened over the past few months with the publication of high-profile and challenging research and the continuing growth, development and recognition for the RP4 team.
The Extreme Rainfall team took on some key observational challenges for precipitation research and then used some of this data to test our models. There was also a raft of individual achievements to add a little light in this difficult time.
CLEX Director Andy Pitman acknowledges the "impossibly challenging" nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Centre's response. He also reviews some of the successes of our researchers and highlights remarkable results published over the past few months.
