Welcome to the website for the Nevada Infrastructure for Climate Change Science, Education and Outreach, a component of Nevada's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).
Nevada EPSCoR provides a statewide interdisciplinary program that stimulates transformative research, education and outreach on effects of regional climate change on ecosystem resources and supports use of this knowledge by policy makers.
The program partners with Southern Nevada higher education to implement climate change research in middle school grades, utilizing 14 Nevada teachers in two two-week summer institutes in both Las Vegas and Reno. Educators work with scientists and are offered three graduate credits each summer through the College of Science. Past participants have had the opportunity to work with regional scientists on water resources in Nevada and climate change. This year participants will focus on local disturbance regimes and climate change interactions.
