“Project-Based Learning: Global Awareness Tour” Teacher Workshop
February 21 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
This full-day interactive workshop will provide NASA global awareness educational resources and explore how they contribute to the understanding of climate change and their societal applications.
Susan Kohler, NASA Education Specialist, will guide participants on how to use NASA data to analyze global climate changes, including greenhouse gas climate changes and ecosystem changes. Participants will develop their understanding of the Earth’s resources and consider how human behavior affects air, water, temperature changes and climate. Participants will also engage in inquiry-based activities to promote problem solving, communication skills and teamwork.
All activities correlate to the Ohio Core and Science standards. Next Generation Science Standards will be connected to the NASA activities and resources. The activities integrate science, technology, engineering and math with English language arts skills.
The workshop is open to middle school and high school educators (grades 6-12). Contact hours for educator license renewal are available.
