When:Saturday, January 14, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Where:Von Karman Auditorium, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California
Target Audience:Formal and informal educators for grades K-8
Explore the impacts of increasing global temperature on glaciers and sea level using real satellite data from NASA. Then, discover ways to turn these resources into engineering, math and science lessons for students. Finally, learn to use the engineering design process to develop water-filtration and recycling systems to minimize our adverse impact on the water cycle.
