4. Telling Your Story - Tuesday, December 6th, 2016, 8:00 pm EST (1:00 am UTC)

In this hour-long webinar, we will discuss the importance of sharing your story, from the perspective of teachers, students, as well as scientists. Brian Campbell will talk about the importance of being able to communicate your findings, or tell your story, to not just the larger scientific community but also to the general public. Scientists often come together in large conferences to share their research with each other. One of these, AGU (American Geological Union) is one of the largest of these meetings and will be held the week after our webinar. Stephanie Uz, a NASA scientist who studies oceans, will give tell us how a scientist prepares to tell their story to the scientific community. She will also share information about some exciting upcoming research. Vasco Mantas, who runs the Smart Basin StoryMaps and Laura Schetter who runs the H2yOu Project will explain to us how you can easily help your students tell their stories using these two fantastic online platforms. They will use some of the El Niño stories that GLOBE teachers sent us for our October webinar as examples.
