Exploring Earth: Temperature Mapping In this activity, learners model the way Landsat satellites use a thermal infrared sensor to measure land surface temperatures. Exploring Earth: Land Cover In this activity, learners model some of the ways natural processes affect Earth’s landscape through erosion and sediment pollution. Sustainable Futures collection of public programs In this collection of activities, learners explore sustainability science concepts in a variety of activities. SustainABLE Kit Activities and professional development resources designed to engage the public in sustainability. Energy Challenges, Nanotech Solutions? In this forum, learners take the role of a governmental funding agency and asks them to consider how nanotechnology should fit into the timeline and scope of future national energy policy. Tiny Solutions to Our Big Energy Problem In this stage presentation, learners hear a brief overview of energy sources and our current energy crisis and discusses a variety of ways that nanotechnology can improve the situation. Earth Day A compilation of resources for engaging the public in the Earth, Earth Day, and Earth science. Celebrate Earth Day April 22. NISE Network professional learning resources Citizen Science, Civics, and Resilient Communities (CSCRC) Through forums and citizen science projects, museums engage the public in active learning and resilience planning around heat waves, sea level rise, extreme precipitation, and drought. Sustainability in Science and Technology Museums NISE Network’s Sustainable Futures initiative supports museums and similar cultural organizations in their efforts to integrate sustainability into all aspects of their institution, including decision-making, operations, programs, and community partnerships. The program uses a broad definition of sustainability, which aligns with the UN global goals. Sustainability Professional Development Resources Professional development training tools to prepare educators to plan and implement sustainability projects and facilitate sustainability activities.
