My NASA Data Joins AREN to Showcase Data-rich Classroom Resources
On 1/12/2022, NASA Langley’s Elizabeth Joyner presented to 21 STEM educators from across the U.S. who participate in the AEROKATS and ROVER Education Network (AREN) project. AREN is a NASA-supported project designed to train learners to observe and understand our planet Earth through experiential learning using kite-based, low-cost instrumentation systems to gather remotely sensed Earth observations. In this session, AREN educators learned about My NASA Data and how they can access NASA satellite data (and data-rich resources) to build data literacy as they move from small student collected datasets to NASA big data. After the session, educators brainstormed how they may be able to leverage these resources to help students solve real-world problems in their STEM classrooms.
