Date: August 7-8, 2015
Schedule: Friday (11AM – 5PM) and Saturday (10AM – 4PM)
Location: NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena, CA
Target Audience: Formal and informal educators for grades 6 -12
Work directly with JPL scientists to discover how NASA satellites are providing data on ocean circulation, the water cycle, and climate issues such as sea level rise. Content and hands-on activities will allow you to help your audiences understand real-world applications in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
Featured NASA Scientists and Engineers
This workshop offers the opportunity to work with scientists and engineers from multiple earth science missions seeking to better understand the connections between the land, ocean, and atmosphere. Experts Xueyang Duan, Mark Fujishin, Alex Gardner, Tony Lee, Alireza Tabatabaeenejad, JT Reager, Jorge Vazquez and Victor Zlotnicki will be on hand to discuss the science and technology behind measurements of sea level, salinity and soil moisture.
This free workshop is offered by the Jason-3, AirMOSS and Aquarius missions in conjunction with the NASA/JPL Educator Resource Center.
The Educator Resource Center provides formal and informal educators with NASA resources and materials that support STEM learning. For more information, visit the Educator Resource Center page.
