Drew Bush has more than a decade of experience teaching students about Earth, ocean and climate science and evaluating the impact of technology-based inquiry, citizen science, and service-based curricula. In the past he has developed and evaluated technology-based science curricula for high school (e.g., at the American Museum of Natural History, McGill University’s Be A Climate Modeler For A Week Summer Camp), Collège d’enseignement général et professionnel (e.g., at John Abbott and Dawson Colleges) and undergraduate (e.g., at McGill University, New York University, Cornell University/University of New Hampshire’s Shoals Marine Laboratory) students.

I have been helping to manage a grant funded project from Environment and Climate Change Canada at McGill University studying the impact of information about extreme weather on social media.
Although I’m still affiliated at McGill University, I also now manage, evaluate, and develop educational and public programming at the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium in St. Johnsbury, Vermont.
