Is climate change really happening?
Since "Fridays for future" climate change has been on everyone's lips and is discussed in public and politics. Especially young students are engaged in this topic. But how do scientists come up with a reliable statement that there is a climate change? In this workshop, students will explore fact-based this statement. They use real data, work out the regression analysis themselves and use it a hypothesis test for validation. The goal is to reflect critically and objectively on a very emotional subject.
