In January 2019, Daniela Faggiani-dias taught a middle school class in San Diego, CA about ocean warming using an Argo float. Her talk entitled ‘Ocean Warming: why it is happening, how we know it is happening and how technology can help the scientific community to clarify the different aspects of ocean warming’, was part of outreach activities sponsored by Stay Cool 4 grandkids.
Stay Cool 4 grandkids is a San Diego-based organization working to encourage grandparents and other seniors to take action against global warming. Some of their activities include educating kids about different aspects of climate change. In this case, Stay Cool 4 grandkids invited Daniela Faggiani-dias, a PhD graduate student from Scripps Institution of Oceangraphy, to teach classes to middle schoolers around San Diego.
