FREE 1-hour Webinar
Educators in Grades 3-12

The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

Explore the "Climate Change in my Backyard" resources. Engage students in field study and model building activity. Learn how students can actually create an ecosystem model, which will include both abiotic (sun, wind, rain) and biotic (animals, plants) components. The NASA STEM activities are designed to provide both visual and tactile demonstrations of the interconnectedness of all components of an ecosystem, and that they are dependent on each other for survival.
