Education & Outreach
At CGRER, we believe coping with environmental change requires objective research data to make informed decisions.
Though we're a research institute first and foremost, we also stress education and outreach efforts to help Iowans understand the environmental challenges we face. We aim to provide research findings on key environmental impacts to decision-makers at all levels, so that they may make more informed choices.
Outreach also involves listening to the concerns and ideas of Iowans as they seek solutions for environmental issues they confront everyday in their communities.
If you would like a guest speaker from CGRER to visit your group or organization, please contact Jane Frank at 319-335-3333.
The Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research is committed to sharing our research with the public. Through educational outreach, we hope to provide students with classroom content that comes directly from the researchers studying it. Part of this effort includes providing educational content through PowerPoint presentations.
Here are presentations for a list of topics CGRER members have researched. Each topic has 3 different target age groups, ranging from elementary, to high school. Each presentation also has two versions: the simple presentation with just slides and a teacher version, which provides complete information for the presenter to read either as a script or for content knowledge.
