The Australian Cooperative Research Centre for Renewable Energy (ACRE) was established by the Commonwealth Government to promote renewable energy and greenhouse gas abatement technologies. As well as research and development programs aimed at realising their widespread implementation ACRE sees itself as having an important role in the communication of information about these technologies to the public and school students. This paper looks at the “Just Hot Air?” program of activities which has been developed and trialed by the School and Community Education project within ACRE to help teachers teach, and students learn, about the Greenhouse Effect.
