Limited seats remain for K-12 science teachers who wish to attend a free workshop to learn how to bring the excitement of NASA to their Earth Science classrooms. "Earth Right Now--A Year of New Missions" will be presented by Dr. Russanne Low, Higher Education Workgroup Lead, Earth Science, Science Mission Directorate, of the NASA Education & Public Outreach Forum. The event will take place on Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm at the College of Lake County's Earth Science Center (Rm A225) on the CLC-Grayslake campus (19351 W. Washington). It is being sponsored by the College of Lake County Science Outreach program and the University Center of Lake County. Those who wish to attend should RSVP by April 25, 2014 to Dr. Xiaoming Zhai via xzhai@clcillinois.edu or (847) 543-2504.

Dr. Low will focus on resources found in NASAWavelength.org, an educational digital library of resources freely available to educators. She will address how these resources can be used to address the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and to engage students in the NGSS practices while using fun hands-on activities. Participating teachers will gain hands-on experiences using classroom-ready lessons on topics related to the Earth. They will also receive breakfast and 4 CPDUs.
