Data,data, data..data is everywhere! How do we teach students to care about data? To interpret data? To understand all the cool things that can be done because of data? Look no further: join us on this LIVE conversation with NASA experts to explore how they brought visualizations of the Earth to the palm of our hands all by using, you guessed it, DATA!
NASA scientists will join PBS Digital Innovator All Stars, Bobbi Starling and Sebastian Byers, to highlight exciting resources and models that you can immediately implement in your classroom to make science, data and learning about space fun and engaging for your students.
