The Climate and Global Change Research Center is a new program at the University of Pittsburgh that focuses on bringing together different departments and schools at the university to consider climate change in broad and unique ways. Every semester we will need undergraduate students interested in interdisciplinary research related to climate change and science communication. Students will be involved in increasing the awareness and impacts of climate change through community outreach and regularly contributing to our website. Students who can dedicate 5 to 10 hours per week in two blocks of 4 to 5 hours each will be paid $8.30 per hour.  If you are interested in applying for next semester please contact the center at climctr@pitt.edu.


Volunteering Opportunity

The  Pitt Science Outreach Lab would like to ask you for help again for a fun Girl Scout event in honor of Earth Day, 2018! This will take place on Saturday, April 21st. They would need to leave campus at 10am and they will have you back no later than 3pm. You will help with the delivery of our Diving into Earth’s Past program. The truck will be set up so that visitors will have the opportunity to explore how scientists trace past fire history events and how pollen samples can provide information on the earth’s climate conditions throughout history. It’s a very exciting lab and you will be engaged with students throughout the day. You can find more out about these specific programs on their website at www.pittscienceoutreach.com.

Please let them know if you will be available to help me April 21st on the Pitt Mobile Science Lab NO LATER than April 6th, earlier is greatly appreciated.
