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.

Unearthing Microfossils – Keepers of the Earth’s Climate Record will be presented on Monday November 22 at 11:00 – 11:45AM ET.

DESCRIPTION: The Lamont-Doherty Core Repository is home to one of the world’s largest collections of ocean floor samples called sediment cores. Why are 20,000 cores not enough? Join the curator, Nichole Anest, for a look inside this unique library and a hands-on activity where we will explore what is in all that mud.
