Data,data, is everywhere! How do we teach students to care about data? To interpret data? To understand all the cool things that can be done because of data? Look no further: join us on this LIVE conversation with NASA experts to explore how they brought visualizations of the Earth to the palm of our hands all by using, you guessed it, DATA!

Peter Dorofy, Director, and John D. Moore, Executive Director, at the Institute for Earth Observations and the Palmyra Nature Park will join PBS Digital Innovator All Stars, Bobbi Starling and Sebastian Byers, to highlight exciting resources and models that you can immediately implement in your classroom to make science, data and learning about space fun and engaging for your students.

PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for each one hour virtual professional learning event.

Our world changes every day, and with that, our teaching practice does to: there is always more to learn as a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) educator. In this three part series, we’ll look at ways to inspire our young scientists and make concepts such as data and computational thinking engaging! Register for the three part "Live Learning" experience: Inspiring Young Scientists Through STEAM Education.

This virtual professional learning opportunity is powered by OVEE: a shared media viewing experience. Created by ITVS and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), OVEE combines quality HD media and live stream content with the community-building conversation of social media in a single-screen experience.

Through OVEE, filmmakers, educators, public media stations and other partners create online screenings that bring together fans, students, subject experts and special guests to watch streaming media and chat live in a virtual theater. The OVEE chat enables them to discuss the topic, share resources, and ask questions of panelists and experts featured in the video.
