Graph of global temperature anomaly from 1880 to 2015


Saturday, January 27, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.


Columbia Memorial Space Center, Downey, California

Target Audience:

Teachers for grades 6-12


In this free workshop, teachers will learn how to get students using real NASA Earth satellite data to create models and examine short-term and long-term climate trends. This activity meets Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Reserve your spot today! (Pre-registration is required.)

Note: This workshop is FREE for all pre-service and fully credentialed teachers! Participants are required to bring in their teacher or student ID the day of the workshop. Lunch will be provided.

  • Graphing Global Temperature Trends – Students use global temperature data to create models and compare short-term trends to long-term trends.
  • Graphing Sea-Level Trends – In this activity, students will use sea-level rise data to create models and compare short-term trends to long-term trends. They will then determine whether sea-level rise is occurring based on the data.
