The NISE Network runs a series of free online workshops to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, and create more channels for partners to share their work and learn from each other directly.
Celebrate Earth Day with NISE Net: Activity Connections and How Visitors Can Contribute Local Environmental Observations to NASA Science
Tuesday, April 16, 2019; 11am - 12pm Pacific / 2pm - 3pm Eastern
Happy Earth Day! Get a quick refresher on the many Earth and environmental connections across the Explore Science toolkits from NISE Net activity developers. Also learn more about NASA visualization resources that will help connect your visitors to ongoing efforts to monitor Earth's dynamic systems. Our guest speaker, Holli Kohl from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, will be introducing the GLOBE Observer app (on iPhone or Android) and exploring the three exciting in-app observation tools: clouds, mosquito habitat mapper, and land cover, you can share with your visitors. Through the GLOBE Observer, anyone can join the international GLOBE network of citizen scientists, students, teachers, and scientists while learning more about our shared environment. Come find our more about this popular and easy opportunity to let your visitors become part of the NASA scientific community!
