A NASA-funded initiative to develop climate instruction to underserved populations, such as those enrolled in Community Colleges, has funded the development of a hybrid and an online class on Climate and Climate Change. We will present here the class structure, topics, results from the first course offering and plans for future improvement, as well as a discussion of differences resulting from course delivery format. Because this class was offered in Wisconsin, some of the readings focused on possible agricultural changes due to changing climate as well as how the climate normals changed this year. The class also sponsored two internships for students at Madison's local Electric/Gas supplier, and how that furthered their education will be discussed as well.
