On Thursday May 27, Chia-Ying Lee, Lamont Assistant Research Professor, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, will talk about hurricanes and what’s happening to them in an age of climate change. Learners will get a basic understanding of how hurricanes form, develop, grow, and change, as well as what scientists know (and don’t know) about the 2021 hurricane season. 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.
