2007 My NASA Data Teacher Workshop grades 6-12, NASA LARC, Hampton, VA, July 29-August 3, 2007:
[editor's note: Here's your chance to teach beyond the "debate" about climate change, giving students real tools empirically to explore climate issues.]
NASA Langley Research Center will host a hands-on workshop designed for the
grade 6-12 educator. The workshop will focus on the implementation and use
of Earth system science data sets developed for the pre-college education
community as part of the MY NASA DATA program. A major component of the
workshop will be the development of lessons incorporating one or more data
sets. The data sets are derived from the archive of remotely-sensed data
from NASA's Earth Observing System satellites. Participating teachers will
explore topics in Earth system science (especially atmospheric science),
educational application of data sets, and hands-on classroom activities.
Participants will experience meaningful field trips and benefit from the
expertise of nationally recognized atmospheric researchers. Participants
will also explore how data sets can be used to enhance their curriculum and
how students can utilize these data for inquiry-based learning and research.
Participant feedback and curricular contributions will be enlisted as
further development of data sets continues. Earth science educators are
particularly encouraged to apply. For more information, visit
