FSM PACC joins the Dept. of Education to develop teaching resources

Last week, the FSM PACC and KIRMA joined the Department of Education program PREL, Pacific Resources for Education and Learning, to develop classroom resources. Science teachers met with PREL Manager, Miss Corrin Barros and University of Washington professor, Dr. Julian Sachs to plan for video interviews of how climate has changed in the view of older people. These videos will be used by science teachers as a resource for teaching climate change.
