Education Resources for Doomsday 2012

Posted on December 7, 2012 - 5:02 PM CST

With only 2 weeks left before December 21st, 2012 there is a definite uptick in public attention to the idea that Doomsday is on its way. The Calendar in the Sky project brings together Maya cultural experts, educators, and NASA scientists to create resources for educators to both respond to questions about the Maya Calendar and some of the different doomsday scenarios that people are concerned about. Check out our website ( and follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

Calendar in the Sky is a NASA-funded project led by UC Berkeley to engage the American public, particularly Latino audiences, in NASA science (space exploration, astronomy, planetary and Earth sciences, etc.) via the broad interest in Maya culture.
