Did you know that NASA Earth science research, observations and visualization tools are at your fingertips? In fact, over a dozen online tools allow learners of all ages to view, download and analyze data from the fleet of current and past NASA Earth science missions.

Plan ahead for Geography Awareness Week (November 17 – 23) with easy-to-use sources of authentic NASA Earth science data. MY NASA DATA (MND) is your key to over 200 microsets of data of Earth’s atmosphere, biosphere, ice, ocean, land surface, and more. The new NASA Mapping Our World Interactive, which allows users to explore 25 unique views of the planet and connect with related NASA resources, features several of these data sets. 

Learn more about these resources during a one-hour hangout with Preston Lewis and Sarah Crecelius, education outreach coordinators with Science Systems and Applications, Inc. (SSAI) at the NASA Langley Research Center.

Designed primarily for educators, this event will introduce participants to the MND sources on the interactive, how to navigate the MND portal to access the many tools available, including MND’s Live Access Server (LAS), a large number of lesson plans, and more. 

We encourage you to submit your questions before or during the hangout in the comments section of this event or via twitter using #mynasadata

New to MND or wanting to explore further? Take advantage of this unique opportunity to discover this wonderful resource so that you and your students can start using authentic NASA Earth science data.

Earth Science Week is finally here! If you guessed that Echo was hanging out in Greenland last week, you were right. This week, Echo is celebrating by moving to a warmer climate - he had to fly quite a long way to get to his current location. Can you guess where he is? Here's the first clue of the week:
