K-12 Earth Institute | GISS Webinar: A Penne for Your Thoughts: What Scientists Eat in the Field (Grades 2-5)

Thursday, April 22 at 4:00pm ET | Registration is free but required, link to register below.

In collaboration with Columbia University’s Earth Institute, we would like to invite you to a series of webinars for K-12 students and educators. The EI LIVE K-12 channel features experts from across the Earth Institute presenting relevant sustainability content in 45-minute live sessions for K12 students and educators.  During this Thursday’s episode “A Penne for your Thoughts: What Scientists Eat in the Field”, students will hear from Vicki Ferrini, Senior Research Scientist, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Michael Kaplan, Lamont Research Professor, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Kirsty Tinto, Associate Research Scientist, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, and Jonny Kingslake, Assistant Professor, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences. Students will learn about what researchers eat on land and in the middle of the ocean, and how they have to conserve everything they’ve packed. They’ll hear about innovative techniques for getting food and water, and unique recipes they can also try at home. During each EI K-12 session the NASA Education Program Specialist from NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies provides supplemental NASA education, content, platforms and resources relevant to the weekly topic for further exploration and discovery.
