The Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Education Committee will host a virtual workshop for 50 educators on Tuesday July 20 and Wednesday, July 21. (1:00 to 5:00pm EDT on both days). ESIP members will share an educational resource and lead particiapnts through an activity using Earth science data to explore phenomena via different types of data. Tools and resources include:
  • The NOAA CrowdMag app,
  • NASA’s Earth System Data Explorer,
  • UNAVCO Velocity Viewer,
  • NOAA CIMSS satellite data activities,
  • NASA SEDAC Hazards Mapper and HazPop App,
  • En-ROADS Climate Decision Model, and
  • The Concord Consortium Wildfire Module, and
  • The “Out 2 Lunch” archive: Earth Science webinar demonstrations of data tools and resources
Participating STEM educators will also be eligible to apply for $500 implementation grants!
What better way to inspire innovation in Earth science data frontiers than training the teachers who educate our youth?
