The National Association of Geoscience Teachers is offering the webinar: “A Sampling of Federal Education Resources Supporting Earth and Space Science Instruction” on Thursday, November 9 4 p.m. ET, 1 p.m. PT.
This webinar will review a sampling of federal STEM education resources, with emphasis on Earth and space science. These resources, which are largely based on real-world data, are for many teachers vital to their approach to implementing the Next Generation Science Standards in Earth and space science. The importance of these resources inspires many educators to engage in conversations about local, state, and federal policies and budgets. As part of this webinar, a representative of the Geoscience Policy Department at the American Geoscience Institute (AGI) will outline effective approaches to contacting decision makers, especially at the federal level.
Presenters include: a representative from NOAA, a representative from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and a representative from AGI. The webinar is free, but registration is required.
