The purpose of this project was to work with middle school teachers to co-create a climate change curriculum to appear on an interactive website in an effort to educate and motivate their students. The website was evaluated with several surveys to determine its effectiveness in educating students about the climate change crisis and motivating behavior change. After completing modules on the website, most students learned more about climate change and were more likely to participate in climate action. The participating teachers thought some strengths of the website were the interactive elements, such as the videos and games, and its organization. The teachers plan to use the website next year and expand it beyond middle school students.
