Event Description

What determines a planet's climate? In this web seminar, you will use NASA mission data collected from NASA satellites to show how we determine a planet’s climate. The featured lesson in this web seminar is "Modeling Hot and Cold Planets" from the Earth Climate Course. You will explore why extreme temperature differences exist between Earth and other planets in our solar system. You will design an experiment to determine the factors having the greatest influence on the temperature of a planet and test your hypotheses using a simulated computer model. You will analyze the measurements, and conduct comparisons with real world data from satellites and ground based observations. Join us for this session and learn how you can incorporate the use of authentic NASA data into your classroom to bring the real world connection between science and education into your classroom.
