Many partners have shared images of their Explore Science: Earth & Space 2019 events and activities on social networking. Many of these activities were incorporated into Earth Day, Earth Week, and Chemists Celebrate Earth Week events. 

We have gathered just a few of many images shared by partners highlighting the different ways partners are using these NISE Network resources to engage the public in Earth and space science.
