We envision a future where all students and families have the knowledge and creativity they need to strengthen communities in an era of climate change and sea-level rise.​​

Our 5-year goal is to train 500 teachers and reach 10,000 students per year.

To achieve this goal, we are expanding our library of water literacy curriculum and growing our teacher training experience. Your tax-deductible donation—designated for either of these initiatives—will help Ripple Effect train more teachers and provide more students with rigorous science instruction about real people and places impacted by climate-related water issues.


My favorite part of Ripple Effect was creating things to help other people, because they might help me one day.
