Last year Italy became the first country to make climate change education compulsory in schools; in January New Zealand introduced climate change curriculum. But around the globe many students taking part in the growing global youth climate movement say they are being failed by their schools. We aim to help teachers with more resources featured on our website. Let’s do a better job!
There was an asteroid that killed the dinosaurs and acidified the ocean in less then 1000 years. That’s comparable to what’s happening today. We may see equivilant mass extinctions in the ocean in the next 100 years if we don't STOP emitting greenhouse gases at our current rate. Pretty scary, huh?

HEY! That was fun seeing you all at NSTA Salt Lake City. Please join us this spring at the National NSTA Conference in Boston April 2 - 5, 2020
WOW! We're overwhelmed by your words of support for Shape of Life. We had teachers from all over the world let us know how they use Shape of Life resources in their classrooms.
While everyone is a winner in our book, we had to limit the ‘Winners’ of our popular Ray Troll Tree of Life poster to twenty five. Fear not, we’ll definitely hold another contest soon.
In the meantime…
We Wish A Hearty Congratulations to our 2019 Shape of Life Poster Contest Winners!
A special THANK YOU to Erin Rempala, Professor of Biological Sciences, Chair Life Sciences Department at San Diego City College for helping to make this happen!
