Educators in Grades K-12
The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.
Explore NASA’s remote sensing educational resources and how NASA contributes to the understanding of agriculture and ecosystem changes. The activities integrate STEM with English language arts skills. Use NASA data to develop or refine your theories about how water and soil impact the ability of a country to grow crops as the climate changes. Water and soil-based experiments will test theories and provide evidence for the solutions. Multiple inquiry-based activities will deepen the understanding of the problem of growing crops in countries that are struggling to provide food for their people.
