Educator Webinar: Mapping Earth’s Water Cycle with NASA Scientists, 7:00pm ET/4:00pm PT
Scientists from two NASA Earth science missions will address how their synergistic research helps us to understand Earth's water cycle, including extreme events such as floods. This presentation will use an online concept map tool for exploring the water cycle. Unlike traditional slide-based presentations, these dynamic maps act as a resource that can be explored with an audience, instead of a one-way, linear presentation. The concept maps presented are loaded with educational assets - including images, videos, news items - that webinar participants can use in their own educational practices, presentations or for their own learning. The concept maps and other materials presented are freely available online, and instructions will be provided to give participants access to the maps after the webinars. Participants will also learn how to create their own maps. Presenters: Jorge Vazquez, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory J.T. Reager, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory Annette deCharon, University of Maine Carla Companion, University of Maine
