Snapshots of the NASA Climate Kids website throughout the years.

Previous versions of this site. The most recent version was launched in October 2017.


Launched in 2010, NASA's Climate Kids website tells the story of our changing planet through the eyes of the NASA missions studying Earth. Targeting upper-elementary-aged children, the site is full of games, activities and articles that make climate science accessible and engaging. On the website, kids, parents and teachers can explore the differences between weather and climate, learn about how to keep our oceans healthy—and even how to make s'mores using the power of the Sun's rays.


This site is produced for NASA's Science Mission Directorate by the NASA Space Place team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
