Such an important year in Science STARS – together we will explore issues related to the cross-cutting theme of Energy.  In addition to being a scientifically powerful concept that cuts across the disciplines, considering issues related to climate adaptations with the lens of energy is an issue of national importance – even urgency.  How might our inquiry storylines around energy connect our disciplinary passions and that of our youths in ways that we come back together to consider “The World I want to Live In” (theme inspired, borrowed from the White House call for student films this summer).

How might we include our youth in NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL conversations with others who are participating at these levels?

Just learned from my friend and colleague, Joe Henderson, about a woman who works for the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy who would be accessible and supportive: Laura Peters, Assistant Director, Climate Adaptation and Ecosystem.
