Join the Koshland Science Museum for a world climate change negotiation simulation. Created by Climate Interactive, World Climate enables participants to experience the dynamics that emerge as nations negotiate a global agreement on climate change and to develop a deeper understanding of how to address climate change. The experience combines current climate change science with computer simulation, so participants can see how their decisions impact the global climate system in real-time. Admission is $10 ($7 for students) and includes complimentary refreshments.
