The NASA STEM Educator Professional Development Collaborative at Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

As we enter the heat of the 2016 hurricane season, use real NASA data to explore hurricanes while integrating NASA missions, STEM curriculum, design challenges, online resources and the Next Generation Science Standards into your classroom instruction.
Also scheduled to present in this webinar, will be a US Air Force Reserve “Hurricane Hunters" pilot, from Keesler AFB in Biloxi, who will share his experiences and expertise in the study of hurricanes and other major storms (participation is subject to change, due to unpredictable tropical storm activity on the date of this webinar).
