Reminder: Climate Change Teacher Workshop
This is a feature from the NASA/JPL Education Office.
04.14.10 -- A Chemistry and Climate Change Teacher Workshop is being offered on Tues., April 20, 4:30 - 6:30 p.m., at the NASA/JPL Educator Resource Center in Pomona, Calif. The free workshop is recommended for teachers of grades 3 through 8.
In this workshop, teachers will get an overview of what NASA scientists know about climate change and how they know it. There will be a quick introduction to the periodic table of elements, some simple chemistry and a chance for teachers to brainstorm on some "green inventions." This is a great standards-based way to teach and inspire students to think about human impact on the environment.
Interested educators must contact the resource center in advance at 909-397-4420.
