FREE 1-hour Webinar
Educators in Grades 4-10

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

Climbing an ice fall, drilling an ice core from a frozen lake or standing inside a pit to study layers of snow are not usually part of the normal work week of a science teacher. But the annual History of Winter program, an initiative of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, provides these and many other first-hand experiences for elementary and secondary science teachers. This webinar will explore Ice Core samples and how you can bring them to your classroom as a Problem Based Lesson.
