CAMEL is a FREE, COMPREHENSIVE, INTERDISCIPLINARY, MULTI - MEDIA RESOURCE for educators, providing over 200 interdisciplinary topic areas and numerours resource types to give the educator the tools they need to teach CLIMATE CHANGE causes, consequences, solutions and actions. The Educator is able to build their own personal website, invite others and collaborate around teaching materials, strategies and assessment.


CAMEL will develop a climate literate community of researchers, educators, and students to collaborate on options for meeting the major challenges of this urgent problem and making this information available to the world by developing curricular materials to share with others.


CAMEL is a three year, collaborative project funded through the National Science Foundation; Department of Undergraduate Education Award 095-0696.  The NSF Award is $1.6 million over three years.

CAMEL engages experts in science, policy, decision-making, education, and assessment in the production of a  virtual toolbox of curricular resources for teaching climate change CAUSES, CONSEQUENCES, SOLUTIONS and ACTIONS.

CAMEL incorporates inquiry based learning using the highest educational practices targeting the undergraduate educator, but can be utilized by graduate, as well as K-12 level educators to provide them with peer reviewed resources to teach climate change.  This resource will allow all educators to have equal access to vetted, high quality teaching materials about climate change, adaptation, mitigation and possible solutions to limit its impact.

CAMEL is being integrated into the Encyclopedia of Earth, which couples a vetted wiki content environment with social networking and other web 2.0 capabilities. This allows CAMEL to offer Online Educator Networking to assist collaboration among educators around a topic, theme, or regional issues.
