NASA: Earth Series for Secondary Teachers (Bremerton Location)

Presenters

  • Kim Weaver

Description

NASA studies other planets, distant stars, and mysterious phenomena such as black holes, but did you know that the largest number of active NASA missions are focused on gaining a better understanding of our home planet?  Some Earth-focused NASA missions never leave the ground, and others are collecting data from the International Space Station, orbiting satellites, aircraft, and even balloons!

In this series for secondary (Grades 6-12) science/CTE teachers, we will take an integrated approach to the sciences (Life/Earth/Physical) and include connections to mathematics and engineering.  Classroom-ready activities and lessons aligned to the 3-D learning of the NGSS will be included in each session.  Participants will explore the many ways that NASA is gathering data to answer fundamental questions about the Earth, such as:

  • How is the global Earth system changing?
  • What causes these changes in the Earth system?
  • How will the Earth system change in the future?
  • How can Earth system science provide societal benefit?
