"BOSTON (CBS) — A local contest is giving kids a voice about extreme weather and climate change. Between the colors and paper on the table, each image submitted to the Project Cool Science has a message.

"“Cool Science is youth educating adults about extreme weather and climate change through blending of art and science,” said Dr. Robert Chen, a co-principal investigator for Cool Science and Interim Dean School for the Environment at UMass Boston.

"Cool Science is an art contest for students in kindergarten through 12th grade about the weather, energy, and climate change. It’s a collaboration between UMass Boston, UMass Lowell, Mass Art, University of Kansas, and Kansas City Art Insititute."
