My NASA Data team members, Elizabeth Joyner and Desiray Wilson, presented "NASA Resources Support Instruction of NGSS Earth System Phenomena" in the national webinar series hosted by The American Geosciences Institute (AGI), The National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT), and The National Earth Science Teachers Association (NESTA).

MND offers educators of grades 3-12 with a variety of NASA digital assets (i.e., lessons, and activities, as well as data visualization, and story maps) in support of NGSS Earth System phenomena. This webinar focused on how to use My NASA Data (MND) resources in the classroom or informal educational settings. It showcased these resources, as well as demonstrated how to access and incorporate NASA data in classroom instruction. My NASA Data offers data-rich resources to help students analyze regional and global trends of Earth System phenomena.  These resources, such as the Earth System Data Explorer, provide students opportunities to visualize NASA data over space and time.
