Where:Online (link will be provided to registered participants)
Target Audience:Teachers for grades 2-12
In this interactive virtual workshop for teachers, we will discuss activities for both online and in-person classrooms that examine how NASA tracks climate change on Earth. We will explore data-focused activities that detail how scientists collected information well before the era of space satellites and how the process – and our understanding of climate change – has evolved with the advanced technology aboard NASA's fleet of Earth science satellites.
Also, join us earlier in the week for our Teaching Space With NASA live stream to get a primer on this topic from NASA experts. All audiences welcome. A recording will be made available after the live stream.
