Earth Science Week

(Oct. 10-16)

“Exploring Energy” is the theme of this year’s Earth Science Week. The American Geological Institute hosts Earth Science Week annually in cooperation with various sponsors to engage people in Earth science and encourage stewardship of Earth. NASA has contributed many resources to an educator kit designed to help teachers engage students in Earth science before, during and after this special week. In addition, NASA has created an Earth Science Week Website (http://climate.nasa.gov/esw2010) containing videos and other educational resources to help bring Earth science into the classroom. A kick-off video about NASA’s contributions to Earth Science Week is available now, and during Earth Science Week three short videos will be rolled out demonstrating NASA educational activities on the following topics: hurricanes, remote sensing and thermal energy.
