My NASA Data’s story maps are now featured on ESRI’s educational website, Teach with GIS, as part of a gallery which showcases exemplar student exercises that use geographic information systems (GIS) to teach a variety of subjects.
The webpage titled “Use NASA Data to Explore Earth Systems” was published on April 15th, 2020 and features the following My NASA Data Story Maps: Hurricanes as Heat Engines, Creation of Urban Heat Islands, Volcanic Eruptions, Sea Ice and the Earth System, and Global Phytoplankton Distribution.
My NASA Data is part of the GLOBE Mission Earth “Science Activation” project, which is a collaborative of multiple institutions (including NASA’s Langley Research Center) across the United States, formed to increase teacher/ student involvement in the GLOBE Program.
