ClimateSocrates Help Desk arms teachers with climate change knowledge

January 9, 2023

The MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative (ESI) has partnered with SubjectToClimate to introduce a help desk called “ClimateSocrates.”

ClimateSocrates is an interactive support center that offers up to date information about climate science and pedagogical strategies. Teachers searching for lessons plans and other climate education materials from SubjectToClimate can find content in a simple chatbot interaction, which will address common foundational questions on climate change so that they feel ready to teach the topic and answer their students’ questions in class. Content is sourced from the MIT Climate Portal, an ESI project that provides short, easy-to-read explainers and answers on important climate topics with the support of MIT faculty, researchers, and other subject matter experts.
