The National Climate Science Centers Student and Early Career Training was held on November 2-3, 2016 on the University of Massachusetts Amherst campus. There were 70 participants, from undergraduate to post-doc level, early career professionals, and others from across the CSC network. Joined by up to 30 facilitators, educators, and guest speakers, participants learned about and shared reseach on the co-production of science, communicating climate science to diverse audiences, career development, tribal engagement, fostering diversity, and dealing with uncertainty, among other topics. Virginia Burkett, Associate Director of Climate and Land Use at USGS, Alison Meadow, Staff Scientist - Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions, and Ezra Markowitz of UMass Amherst were the featured speakers at this event.
