Climate Detectives

We can all make a difference

Climate Detectives is an ESA school project for students between 8 and 15 years old. Students are challenged to ‘make a difference’ in understanding and protecting Earth’s climate. They will identify a climate problem by observing their local environment and be tasked to investigate it as ‘Climate Detectives’. To this end, they will use available Earth Observation data or take measurements on the ground. Based on their investigation, teams will propose a way to help monitor or reduce the problem. At the end, all participating teams will share their research findings on the Climate Detectives website.

At key phases of the project, scientists and experts in the field of Earth observation and climate will support the teams.

Check out the Climate Detectives guidelines to find more details about participation.
