My NASA Data and Project S’COOL
FREE 1-hour Webinar
Educators in Grades K-8

The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

Participants will explore the large volumes of data that NASA collects about the Earth from space and experience how students can use scientific inquiry and math skills as they access and display microsets of the Earth System. In particular, we will investigate how we can “Reading Bar Graphs and Analyze Tree Rings to Determine Climate Change.”

We will also explore the Project S’COOL website to show how students can get involved with real NASA scientists by providing cloud observation data for comparison with satellite data.
