Adventures of a Scientist in the K-12 Classroom Dr. Lin Chambers shares lessons learned from her experiences speaking with students from kindergarten through high school, in multiple states and on three continents, in two and a half languages, in person and through virtual connections since 1997. Lin is a physical scientist in the Science Directorate at the NASA Langley Research Center, where she leads the S'COOL Project and MY NASA DATA. She was the Contrail Scientist for The GLOBE Program from 2003-2006.
Meaningful Teacher-Scientist Relationships: How to Make It Work K-12 schools are very different from the university and research world, and working with a teacher or visiting a classroom can be very intimidating. In this webinar, Einstein Fellow and Enviornmental Science Teacher Linsday Knippenberg shares ideas for planning classroom visits, collaborating while in the field, and building a lasting, two-way partnership between the teacher and scientist.
