You know all about weather and how the Sun is our biggest driver of weather and climate, but do you know about Space Weather? Come for this one-day workshop and learn about the Sun-Earth connection, the role Earth’s magnetic field plays, and how space weather influences our planet in very real ways. Find out why you might see space weather in the news a lot this year! 

 

We will explore lessons from the Dancing Lights suite of standards-based activities. Dancing Lights is a program where students explore the aurora—our most visible and beautiful result of space weather interaction—through artwork, reading, and writing.  Materials for your classroom will be provided, and also information on the student contest opportunity in the spring of 2014.
