The EdGCM (Global Climate Model) Cooperative provides a free NASA GCM that allows high school and university teachers and students to run experiments identical to those scientists run on supercomputers to simulate past and future climate changes. The goal of the project is to improve the quality of teaching and learning of climate-change science through broader access to GCMs and provide teachers with the technology and materials to use the models effectively. The EdGCM runs on a desktop computer and is available for download to both Mac and Windows platforms. This website describes the EdGCM project, contains links to downloads, information about science standards and technology support. Students and teachers can also find EdGCM simulations in the simulation exchange.
