About This Simulation

Use a climate model to investigate the effects of anthropogenic climate change on people and the environment. Why are scientists pushing to decrease global emissions? What will happen if we don’t? The fate of the world is in your hands!

Learning Objectives

  • Explain what is meant by anthropogenic climate change
  • Identify key human activities that contribute to climate change
  • Describe the effects of global climate change on the environment, people, and their livelihoods

Learn More About This Simulation

Are humans affecting the Earth’s climate? In this simulation, you will learn the meaning of anthropogenic climate change and explore the causes and effects through a 3D climate model!

The causes of anthropogenic climate change

You will discover why scientists believe the global warming experienced in recent decades is deemed unnatural. Using an interactive wall display, you will learn about the key human activities which contribute to climate change. You will evaluate the benefits of these activities, as well as the environmental costs.

Investigate the impacts

Once you are familiar with the causes, you will then investigate the effects of climate change. Take control of our futuristic 3D climate model and use computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems. You will identify how relationships are being modified due to human activity starting from the pre-industrial era, and determine why scientists link particular human activities to climate change.

After this, the fate of the world is in your hands! Explore a greener world, a more industrial world, or both - It’s up to you! You will have the option to explore all outcomes and how they influence different subsystems.

Identify the effects on people and the environment

How does climate change affect biodiversity, sea levels, ocean acidification, and people? Finish off by analyzing the direct and indirect environmental effects explained via the climate model. What will happen if we do not decrease greenhouse emissions?

For Science Programs Providing a Learning Advantage

Professor Margaret Brady was able to enhance student learning with A&P virtual labs.

“They did the simulation at home, then completed the in-person lab within 30 minutes, no questions asked, and passed the quiz with flying colors.”

Lewis Mattin
PhD
Lecturer in Human Physiology
University of Westminster

"I saw some of the students who clearly didn’t necessarily like sitting there reading a book discover they could turn on Labster and keep up with the rest of the class because it spoke to them.

Melody McGill
Curriculum Coordinator
Modesto City Schools

"Having something that's engaging for the students gives teachers that opportunity to breathe and get excited again. Because they're seeing the kids light up, they're seeing the kids engage with content."

"The question always is, ‘Can we demonstrate that the students are meeting course outcomes?’ Check! We can do that.”

Dr. Melody Esfandiari
Chemistry Lecturer
San José State University

"We surveyed over 400 students. More than 90% thought Labster was easy to navigate, and that it was fun, but more importantly, most of them felt confident that they could execute the labs in person. And that confidence is a big deal."

“The Labster simulations get students to do things, and they're not just sitting there consuming a webinar where their mind can drift. They become an active participant in that learning experience.”
