Webinar Description

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:

  • Anna Normand, AGI
  • June Teisan, NOAA
  • Trena Ferrell, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

Webinar Organizers:

Aida Awad (Broward College, Fort Lauderdale, FL)
Edward Robeck (American Geosciences Institute)
Carla McAuliffe (NESTA)
John McDaris (National Association of Geoscience Teachers)

With the NGSS Earth and Space Science Working Group
