ClimateYou Welcomes City Tech Class of Spring 2023

Our first meeting of the semester with City Tech Students in Professor Bah’s “Natural Disasters Class” last week was a positive start to a semester. Discussed were many stimulating climate change ideas students can choose to write as new City Tech Bloggers to be posted right here on this ClimateYou website.   Among the climate change facts students spoke about were melting ice caps, sea level rise and warming oceans among other global warming issues.

We discussed how climate change can be integral to a student’s major such as green building for architecture, civil engineering to sustain the impacts of climate change, computer science to better expand renewable energy, green practices in the hospitality and fashion industry. A more fun topic was how video gaming connects with climate change.

We also briefly discussed how to write an essay by dividing it into three parts: Introduction – no longer than 1 paragraph, Subject – about 2 or more paragraphs, Conclusion – no longer than 1 paragraph. Talking about an essay topic with a friend helps to use one’s spoken voice, a voice that can be used in the essay and also reading the essay out loud before submitting.

Looking forward to reading student essays submitted in a few weeks!
