TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- Local high school students learned the impact of climate change while exploring careers in the science field.

More than 200 Kansas high school students from 18 high schools joined some of the top university scientists on the Washburn University campus.

The students explained their research on climate change and its impact of ocean acidification.

Project Parka is a year-long, comprehensive educational program that enabled Kansas high school students to partner with researchers in Antarctica.

The goal is to excite and engage students in ocean science by providing a platform for them to learn about current marine science research.
