"Rivers and floodplains as key components of global terrestrial water storage variability" Check out this new research. Did you know that terrestrial water storage differs across different climate zones? A team of NASA civil servant and contractor researchers have been using data from several NASA instruments and satellites to better understand the correlation of rivers and floodplains with global terrestrial water storage variability. One of the NASA researchers, Dr. Matthew Rodell, will be our featured presenter for the ENSO Campaign's Phase III Webinar to be held on...

Learning science involves learning important concepts, conducting experiments to see first-hand how researchers discovered and confirmed some elements of science concepts, and learning how to think scientifically. With this complete approach to learning science, students are well-prepared to deal with the natural world around them and to make wise decisions when confronted with various choices. The ability to think scientifically is a valuable skill in almost all aspects of life and doing science teaches scientific habits of mind. Students can do science through research projects...

Currently, Science education has transitioned away from textbooks to more hands on learning. This is an amazing opportunity for teachers to move away from the normal lecturing and explaining in class to reshaping the process of learning. I think that the GLOBE Program is a fantastic organization and empowered program that promises to give an essential change in education.  One example is teaching and learning from directs activities in the field. An excellent activity is to share data from school to school through collaboration.  Students can share what  they are...
