John Ensworth at the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies and the NASA Science Mission Directorate invite you to attend an upcoming online professional development workshop.

Topic: Enrichment Problems in Space and Earth Science XXI

In the 21st bi-monthly installment of these mission- and inquiry-oriented mathematics problems, Dr. Sten Odenwald will supply background for and lead participants through problems from his “Problems in Space and Earth Science” series. The goal of these problems is to teach students about space weather by using mathematics. Each problem begins with real world questions, missions and situations, and applies the necessary mathematics for a solution. Participants may ask questions and work along in this fully interactive Webinar environment. http://spacemath.gsfc.nasa.gov

November 30 to December 18, 2009
Our seventh annual GLOBE surface temperature field campaign will be held from November 30 to December 18, 2009. We had great participation last year. Students from over 60 schools participated in surface temperature observations worldwide last year with most of the schools located in Michigan, Ohio, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Alaska and California. Observations were also taken in places such as Finland, Estonia, Poland, Trinidad and Tobago, Thailand and the Dominican Republic. Don’t forget that your observations need to be entered into the GLOBE website using Universal Time. If you have questions about UTC, go to http://www.globe.gov/arc/faq/view.cgi?convert-ut&lang=en&nav=6
