About Us

We are a group of juniors and seniors from the Battle Creek

Area Mathematics and Science Center, a school with a curriculum based around STEM studies. With information gleaned from classes based around biology and science, we have come to see some of the major effects of climate change. We are motivated to inform people about climate change, as well as to enact meaningful change in climate policy.
