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

Are you interested in working with The GLOBE Program, but not sure where to start? NASA has worked with experienced GLOBE teachers to put together one-week “Pacing Guides.” Each guide provides a five-day sequence of activities that address a guiding question. They are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and they incorporate information on how to engage in science observations with GLOBE. Each Pacing Guide also includes an activity from My NASA Data using real satellite data. On this webinar, you will learn more about the “Cloud Types Featuring NASA GLOBE CLOUD GAZE” Pacing Guide, which targets students in grades 3-8, and the “Clouds and Energy Budget” Pacing Guide, which targets students in grades 6-12.
