K-12 students learning about sea level sensors

The Coastal Equity and Resilience (CEAR) Hub supports underserved communities in co-developing transformative approaches to climate resilience. The initiative brings together community organizations, local governments, and educational institutions to advance the knowledge, technology, tools, and strategies needed to help communities across coastal Georgia reduce the impacts of extreme weather and climate change. CEAR Hub partners work alongside members of vulnerable communities to create fair and just solutions to climate challenges through community-led research, education, training, and outreach.

Effingham College & Career Academy at Honey Ridge Agri Center Sensor Network

Image of Dr. Russ Clark with students from Effingham College & Career AcademyDr. Russ Clark of Georgia Tech, Jack Sinopoli and Nicholas Exley of Effingham College and Career Academy, and students from Effingham College & Career Academy visited Honey Ridge Agri Center to work on the sensor network project in February 2024. The Computer Science and Scientific Research students programmed micro:bits to capture temperature and light level data. They participated in a 30-minute field study that allowed them to analyze temperature and light quality readings throughout various locations on the farm. Honey Ridge Agri Center is one of several locations where the CEAR hub environmental sensors are deployed. The collaboration between ECCA and CEAR Hub is allowing students to engage in STEM/ STEAM projects outside of the traditional classroom to explore, connect, control, and collect data. Students are able analyze data in real time to determine and discover weather changes and identify the impact these changes have on the environment.



Megagenesis XVIII College Fair

CEAR Hub’s Educational Outreach Manager, Lesa Hagins presented the “Global Warming Simulation” as a STEM/STEAM activity with attendees at the 2024 MegaGenesis college fair. Students participated in a hands-on demonstration, hypothesized what would happen to the Earth’s temperature if greenhouse gases increased, and discussed noticeable impacts global warming can have on their community and how the sensor project can help them prepare for the future. Over 200 high school students throughout the low country took part in Megagenesis this year.
