You’re Invited: Building a Resilient Community Through Climate Science Education | Stamford Moms

SoundWaters has been teaching climate science for three decades. On May 15, the Stamford-based nonprofit will host “Building a Resilient Community Through Climate Science Education” to discuss Connecticut’s new state law requiring climate science to be taught in all public schools as of July 2023. Connecticut is the only state that has made such a cutting-edge and forward-thinking mandate. 

Ira Flatow, host of NPR’s popular Science Friday program, will moderate a panel of education and legislative leaders including Stamford Public Schools Superintendent Tamu Lucero, Connecticut State Representative Corey Paris, Ridgefield High School Science Teacher Arlyn Kilduff, and SoundWaters President Leigh Shemitz. The panel will be followed by audience Q&A and a light reception. 

Flatow will lead an important discussion with panelists about what the new law entails, how it is being implemented in our schools and the possible challenges in doing so, and what it means for communities across Connecticut. 

“Building a Resilient Community Through Climate Science Education” will take place on Monday, May 15, 2023, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Cohen SoundWaters Harbor Center, 200 Southfield Avenue in Stamford. The event is free and open to parents, educators and community members. Space is limited so advance registration is required. For more information and to register, visit
