Have you heard about Greenhouse Gases in the news but are still confused on what they are? This class will focus on the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide, methane and water vapour. Students will examine how these gases absorb infrared radiation and then radiate energy back to the Earth. Then, students will gain a better understanding of the natural greenhouse effect, which is essential to life on Earth and the ways that humans are enhancing the natural greenhouse effect.
This class is aimed at chemistry students in Year 9 - 11 but is great for any student who is curious about Greenhouse Gases.

Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This class is for students in Years 9-11 or S3-S5 studying Chemistry.
