Under the leadership of Dr. Michael Town, students in his Technology, Engineering and Communications High School (TEC) physics class garnered the attention of national policy advisors. The students reviewed the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Summary for Policy Makers, a document which gathers current research, and is used by decision makers at local, regional, national, and international levels in business and government as they consider changes to policies related to climate change. As initially written, they felt that most readers without expertise in climate science would be unable to understand the document. Their insightful comments were included in the feedback given to the report authors by the state. Read more about their impact.
Town is a 2011 Teaching fellow.
