A series of inspirational classroom resources to engage students to learn about Earth’s changing climate and how to monitor our planet from space.

Developed under the ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI), these resources help teachers to cover key aspects of the climate system and support Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) topics taught across curricula in eleven educational systems from ESA Member States.

Consisting of a teacher guide, student worksheets and links to resources for additional information, each classroom resource uses engaging climate narratives, practical experiments and integrates ESA's Climate from Space web application. This allows students to explore over 40 years of global satellite data used to (i) understand key aspects of the Earth’s climate and (ii) provide early warnings of change.

Tailored to the curricula for primary and secondary education systems across Europe, a full package of 10 resources has been developed, and are available in five European languages: English, French, Spanish, German and Dutch.
