Who are we?


Stephanie Chasteen

I am a physicist with over 10 years' experience in effective science communication, education, and professional development.  I was previously at the Exploratorium Museum of Science, and in the physics education research group in the physics department at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  I'm the K12 outreach coordinator for the Learn More About Climate project in the outreach office at CU-Boulder, who is generously donating my time to this project.  In my spare time, I write in my sciencegeekgirl blog.

Contact me with any questions about the project, at learnmoreaboutclimate@colorado.edu.


David Swartz

I have been teaching Physical and Environmental Science at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins since 1988 and have been involved with many science project collaborations at Colorado State University over the last decade.  Specific to climate science, I have worked with the K-12 Education Outreach for the Center for Multiscale Modeling of Atmospheric Processes (CMMAP) and the NASA Northern Colorado GCCE project with the Natural Resources Ecology Laboratory (NREL).  Additional programs include the NSF GK-12 program Human Impacts on the Front Range and an NSF Math and Science Partnership titled Culturally Relevant Ecology, Learning Progressions, and Environmental Literacy also with NREL.  Additional programs include the GetWET Laboratory with the Education and Outreach Center as well as a cook stove project with the Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory, both at CSU.  Feel free to contact me at dswartz@psdschools.org, or also at Rocky Mountain High School, 970-488-7222
