  • Hi Fran,

    We have an entire digital-media based curriculum on climate change called “Clue into Climate” for grades 4-8. It includes multiple segments from this story (Climate Watch: California at the Tipping Point), other media pieces and lesson plans. You can view the curriculum at kqed.org/clueintoclimate.

    I have Dish Network and live in Tuolumne County. I’m trying to see the program, “Amateur Rocketeers” which according to your schedule on this page is to be shown on KVIE this week, April 25-27.
    Going thru my Dish “live” scheduling, I can’t find the program.
    Can you help?
