GLOBE Teachers: AMS DataStreme Project Offers K-12 Teachers Science Courses for Graduate Credit
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) DataStreme project is a nationwide initiative that provides K-12 teachers the opportunity to take a weather, ocean, or climate science course for graduate credit.
DataStreme Program has major support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to conduct a Teacher Enhancement Project with a strong leadership component. An innovative set of internet-based distance-learning courses directed towards middle-school teachers, but open to all K-12 teachers, has been developed and is being implemented nationwide. The course, DataStreme Atmosphere - focuses on the study of the atmospheric environment; DataStreme Ocean - explores the ocean in the Earth system; and DataStreme Earth's Climate System (ECS) - incorporates inquiry-based instructional strategies and a holistic concept of Earth from oceanic, atmospheric and terrestrial climate and problem-focused perspectives.
