Warmer temperatures caused by climate change and air pollution have increased our exposure to heat-related illness. This project is an important step in tackling urban heat, by identifying the hottest neighborhoods in Columbia.

Attendees of Show Me the Heat will help us launch a weather balloon into the sky. The balloon will be used to collect climate data. Other activities will include mural painting, food, and other family fun activities.
