A Climate/Climate Change class taught in both online and hybrid formats has been developed under a 3-year NASA/NICE grant to the Madison Area Technical College in Madison, Wisconsin. Pre- and post-testing gauges how much students know about climate before the class, and how much they know after. Data from two years (Spring Semesters) of classes document how students have increased their climate literacy. Class content has been modified based on Year 1 student comments. The effect of those student-driven changes is documented in the Pre- and Post-Test surveys.
