Sylvia Scharf, Climate Education Specialist

Sylvia Scharf focuses on teacher use of ESI’s public-facing materials, especially the podcast TILclimate (Today I Learned: Climate) and the MIT Climate Portal.

Before joining the ESI team, Sylvia was at New England Aquarium, where she honed her climate change communication skills with teachers, teens, staff, and the general public. Her favorite projects focused on climate resilience, the history of Boston Harbor, and the use of maps and graphics in public communication. She holds a Masters in Environmental Education from Antioch University New England and a Bachelors in Biology from Smith College.

A born-and-bred New Englander with Southwest roots, Sylvia can often be found in the woods or exploring the coast with her wife and child.
