The central focus of the Minerva Action Group (MAG) is to assist students in middle school, high
school, and those starting in higher education to become personally and directly knowledgeable about
climate change issues through hands-on experiments and field exercises that yield understanding of
and insights into specific technical areas.
The following MAG exercises can be easily conducted in schools as part of science classes,
environmental exercises, science clubs, or even individually in remote learning settings.
1. Determining Carbon Storage in Local Trees, Minerva Action Group, Gil Rodgers and
William Moomaw, Technical Adviser- Robert Leverett, October 2021.
