Elizabeth Joyner, Angela Rizzi and Desiray Wilson from NASA Langley Research Center's My NASA Data (MND) project provided virtual professional development to elementary, middle, and high school teachers in Providence, RI and Toledo, OH via zoom conferencing. Both groups explored the Urban Heat Island Effect Story Map using MND Data Literacy Cube learning resources. Teachers at the University of Toledo explored MND resources and integrated MND's Earth System Data Explorer with GLOBE data in doing science research. Tracy Ostrom from UC Berkeley continued with the theme of student research by showcasing the revised GLOBE Poster Template for students and the rubric used to assess the poster.
