I just found this thread and wanted to share the curriculum we released this year. "Sea-Level Rise in the Classroom," a curriculum that helps teachers explore sea-level rise science from the intersection of social and environmental issues, is now available online . In an effort to further support coastal education we will host six teacher workshops along the Gulf of Mexico in spring and summer of 2022! If you are interested in attending an educator workshop, please sign up online .

Lipedema Treatment is a condition that's been puzzling patients and doctors alike for years. It's characterized by a disproportionate accumulation of fat in the legs and sometimes arms, leading to pain, tenderness, and often a significant impact on mobility. This fat isn't like the kind that might appear from a few extra cookies; it's stubborn and doesn't respond to diet or exercise. That's where liposuction comes in as a possible treatment for lipedema.

My friends in New Jersey have established Climate Education standards across the curriculum. If you are working on climate curriculum in your state, you may want to crosswalk these standards with your materials. These standards are some of the first established for educators in the nation. If you're working with educators, standards driven instruction is more apt to be applied if standards are present. https://www.nj.gov/education/standards/
