In collaboration with SRI International and NASA, EDC will develop and pilot two high school level interactive websites for climate change investigations.
With these websites, high school teachers will be able to compile customized data sets on local climate change using NASA’s Goddard Interactive Online Visualization and Analysis Infrastructure (Giovanni), which contains archived Earth observation mission data. Created for scientists, the Giovanni data sets will be adapted for high school students and teachers.
Four of the six pilot teachers participating in this project are currently using EDC’s Foundation Science: Earth Science (FSES) climate curriculum. EDC will revise the FSES climate unit to include use of the Giovanni data, and will work with the pilot teachers as the project websites are developed and tested.
