Marshmallow Run is a game idea that came out of the first Girl Scout Cookie Hackathon in September last year. We were preparing for our coding workshop and developed a set of graphics for the Girl Scouts to use to make animated characters from a variety of types of Girl Scout cookies – as well as s’mores ingredients such as marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers. As a software engineering executive from Colombia, I thought that the best way to honor Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15) was to help the local Girl Scout Hispanic troops earn one of the new cybersecurity badges. October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, having the activities nearing October seemed very fitting. Girl Scouts has been focusing on STEM badges for all ages with ...

2019.07.21 04:30 CalClimateClimate education - science, policy, comm, etc. - that scales.
Climate education - about science, policy, comm, etc. - that scales. but first: What today's (already climate concerned) kids should know:
Their parents have only reduced GHG emissions by the very slightest amount. (link, with graph. "[Almost 30 years ago,] the IPCC projected future CO₂ levels and warned of potential global warming. [Since then], we've cut [only] <5 ppm from that 1992 [business as usual] scenario." (slightly mangled quote))
April 1992 CO2: 359ppm, an increase of ~80ppm over the preindustrial CO2 level
(...27 years go by...)
April 2019 CO2: 413.5ppm, an increase of 133 ppm over preindustrial -- i.e., an additional ~40% rise since those initial warnings.
ACE is the Alliance for Climate Education, I'm told they educate high school students in a general assembly, their website for climate is ACESpace. (on wikipedia here, on Twitter here)
NCSE.com (@ncse) (nat'l center for science education) for offers support to those teaching K-12 about climate.
(here are NCSE's 5 climate change lessons) (consensus, models, past v. present, local impacts, solutions) (for what grade?) (do they address future projections and the carbon emissions budget? how we're doing so far?)
EdReports, a Consumer Reports for textbooks to find if they meet common core standards (Gates Fndn funded)
A "climate ed. resources" compendium does exist, called CLEAN, but when I looked, I didn't get the sense that it filtered for quality.
The state of k-12 climate education now is... (sad answer)
K-12 stuff to be alert for (& wary of):
modules on "climate science" that are 98% about 'the climate' and only 2% or less about climate change, and that don't address future projections. Also, prepare yourself to find that many-to-most textbooks will be out of date; expect insinuations that there's still doubt about humans causing climate change.
projects & demonstrations that could work for elementary school (or science fairs?), a few ideas & links
The first experiment showing the warming effect of CO2 in the presence of solar radiation, by Eunice Foote (link) (has anyone tested & refined it for suitability in a classroom?)
make a nested-pots refrigerator, and/or a solar oven, measure the temperatures. By how much does an umbrella with a radiant barrier decrease how hot the user is, under it? Painting a car roof white? A tree? a sidewalk? Use an energy monitor (e.g. kill-a-watt) to compare power draw of more vs. less efficient household devices. Use a CO2 monitor (under $100 at amazon, although I think mine is no longer accurate) to measure classroom & outdoor CO2; show the Keeling curve. If you have a gas stove, use the CO2 monitor to see what 'cooking with gas' does to surrounding (indoor) air. (related: @myfoobot says it does indoor air quality (how?))
Using a plug-in power meter (*), compare energy used to cook (to heat water to boiling?), in a microwave oven vs. a portable induction cooktop vs. (if you can see the gas meter) a gas stove (there you'd get BTUs, but could maybe still compare it somehow.) Calculate how much planetary heating was unleashed in the process. (depends in part on what % of your utility's energy comes from renewables, also you might ask an expert)) how you'd get the 'future heat' value of a quantity of natural gas.
Things people still need to grasp:
Efficiency vs. transition : if the goal is to transition from fossil fuels to clean energy sources (it is.), just using less ffs is less helpful than switching from gas to electric. We can't just cut our way to a prosperous future.
Science faimakerclub ideas (just a few, rather basic, small-picture): What is the most effective way to cool someone inside a building without a/c? What does CO2's absorption spectrum look like, can you measure its effectiveness in trapping heat? (and maybe see the C-0 'product wishlist' page) for ideas on things to make. How could you humanely get a dog's perspective of sidewalk surface comfort?
What could Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, college volunteers do? What would a 'badge' entail?
the nytimes offers (oct 9) "One Thing You Can Do: Talk to Your Children About Climate Change" (link), but its "talk about solutions" advice doesn't mention talking about how solutions happen, or about our problem that we can talk about solutions until we're blue in the face, but if we don't mention that at present they're far from enough, we're not being honest. Talk about infrastructure, and what the kids can do to get their city or neighborhood to be future-friendly. Explain that what really really matters is global reduction. Talk about companies like Zola Electric; ask your kids, if Greta Thunberg or the Zola cofounder had come to them as 10-year-olds asking for advice on how to fight climate change, what would have been good advice.
Show your kids this image. General effectiveness for teens: (mostly stuff that's not usually found elsewhere) (keyword meta)
Take care you don't learn the wrong stuff: "wasting your time is not the worst thing the educational system does to you. The worst thing it does is to train you that the way to win is by hacking bad tests." (*)
You might look at the "7 habits of...", they get listed in hereI can't vouch for the book; I did look through a few pages at Amazon, and it felt padded. Can you learn from the Habits list just by skimming it? I don't know.
Quotes and thoughts: Education vs. outreach: My somewhat tentative thoughts on the distinction: If "Education isn’t about filling a bucket but about gaining a tool belt" (source) (bucket=ontology, toolbelt=epistemology), then this 'climate education' page is about both 'gaining the tools' and 'instilling the knowledge that others have accrued by the use of such tools'. Most of what's needed, re climate understanding, is more on the 'outreach' (here's what you most need to know about what the evidence has shown) side of the outreach(knowledge)-to-education(tool-learning) spectrum. (But due to the disinfo PR about climate change&action, you also need some 'tool belt' understanding.)
Your climate citizen tool belt would be:
learning how you can tell who's an expert, and how science progresses
learning how the press has covered climate change, what its biases are, how to interpret the news that they provide
learning how you can most easily find out the truth about a disinfo claim that someone makes
understanding how political change happens, and how tribal views are formed & held
learning how to figure out where you can be effective in setting us up for a better future.
Outreach ("filling the bucket"), aka 'scientific facts' (as best we understand from the data at this point in time) would be more about instilling an understanding of what the science indicates about the cause and the projected future impacts, and explaining how well we're doing at tackling this, explaining the difference between climate change mitigation vs climate change adaptation, and explaining what needs to happen, to keep climate change under control.
Note the word 'tentative', above. This from me is still somewhat on the fuzzy side. Contests and other encouragements (see also the 'contests/awards/prizes' page)
"Solar District Cup", "a collegiate competition in which student teams design and model solar-plus-storage systems across multiple buildings on a local distribution network." ("a three-year NREL project designed to prepare students to enter the solar workforce amidst a changing energy landscape. " (source) (from the 'Contests and Prizes' page)
Adult and other outreach - what other public outreach channels are there, including to adults, that are being used? (here's something MIT published (for alumni?)) Blather: What courses (tutorials?) are needed? Are there ones available for applicable science communication? for finding and visualizing climate action & policy related data? For "learn the basics" for a university that wanted students to have a fundamental grounding? Workable climate science/policy lab experiments? hackathons? For other resources, see the near-stub Interrogating handy datasets The poor state of climate education in Canada:
"Of the six topics..., “it’s climate,” “it’s warming,” “it’s us” and “it’s bad” are considered not mandatory in Alberta classrooms. The other two, “experts agree” and “we can fix it,” aren’t covered at all.
2015.01.08 22:51 TezcatlipokemonDoge is dead... Long live Doge!
(In response to this post.) I can't see anyway around it but to treat this like a project/operation: How's Phoenix Moon sound? (Hope to doge sounds "good" because that took me way longer than it should.) In my estimation, first order of business should be to get everybody back here! Devs, PR, artist, Foundation, Fundation, race people, all the fans, everybody. We can't hope to win the game if we don't field our best team. But how do we do that? We'll getting them here and keeping them here is two different things. But maybe a post (or posts?) that should be exciting and evocative need to reach beyond dogecoin to the front page. It should be "legit." Exciting just because it is exciting if possible. But I don't know, maybe it'll be exciting on its own that we are getting the band back together. This post should be like ringing the bells of the church in the middle of town to call everyone to come see what's going on. Then from there we state our what we are going to do, where it's going to go, why it's going to work, what we need from them, etc (which we will have to figure out in advance, right?). With just a bit of luck it the excitement will feedback on itself, snowball and it will all be organic from there. First thing I guess is just to talk about all this. Definitely a bare-bones plan that needs to be fleshed out. But let's start something. Let's do this! All we have to do is decide it's going to work and then make it. Sound good? Sound right? Much shibe-appropriate? Talking here is fine. If you guys are in totally to the extent I hope you are we can go over to /phoenixmoon which I will jazz up as soon as I know this is going to get off the ground. Thanks, and do hope you jump in. Make dogecoin what it should be, what you know in your shibely brain's heart it will be again! Edit:
mr_dick_doge suggests bounties for content and stuff that we want and need.
(I can help build this if we decided to go with it and need a little site to facilitate the bounty submissions, tracking and awards)
GoodShibe suggests looking up top old posts on /dogecoin and messaging the users, asking them to come back.
(Great idea, we should do this. Let's get the message ready, maybe set a date and/or time to ask everyone to come first and then send it out to /dogecoin top posters along with the other top from dogecoin specialty subs. Get everybody here at the same time and try to jumpstart this place!)
mcsen2163 suggests holding a university competition
(I don't know what form the contest would take; judged hackathon, software competition, other somethings? But wouldn't it be cool to offer some college shibe a full-ride or maybe the last two years or something at the right public university that was special to shibes?)
(Ad would be one of the subreddit ads? Meetup on the day we stage this "come back to dogecoin" event? Check out the comment for more.)
garylachance :O seems to be doing something incredible with doge related to "peacebonds" and nobel prizes. Check out the comment.
Edit 2: Writing the letter to send out to top posters as per GoodShibe's suggestion ...tell me what you think. It's weird, I know. I can only write weird. You all have commenting/edit suggesting rights so improve it or add to it what you want and I'll play with it. If there are edits all over it when you get there wonk-wonk, guess it needed some work, but also you can click in the upper right from "suggesting" to "viewing" and read it naturally. Thanks! Anybody want to help with gathering shibe names from the top posts for the last year? Here is a spreadsheet where we can put them in.
