Short Description:
CloudSat provides educator professional development for informal educators, specifically the Solar System Ambassadors (SSAs), and content-based curriculum to Girl Scouts. CloudSat scientists train the SSAs so that they can convey CloudSat-related information to the general public across the nation; and the CloudSat team also supports the development of new Girl Scout “Earth Science” Patches for Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes. The objective of the CloudSat informal education programs is to provide a NASA mission-connected pathway to help learners better understand the nature of clouds and their role in Earth's atmospheric system.
