(Oct. 12, 1-2pm ET)
Earth Science Week 2011 encourages people everywhere to explore the natural world and learn about the geosciences. “Our Ever-Changing Earth,” the theme of ESW 2011, engages your people and the public in learning about the natural processes that shape our planet over time. In honor of Earth Science Week 2011, NASA will host a web event with Dr. Waleed Abdalati, NASA’s Chief Scientist. Dr. Abdalati – an Earth scientist – will share his stories and perspectives on our ever-changing Earth. Participants will be able to email questions during the webcast, and will be able to interact with the guests live on NASA’s Digital Learning Network’s DLiNfo Channel at http://dln.nasa.gov/dln.
NASA has created an Earth Science Week Website (http://climate.nasa.gov/esw2011) which contains many resources, interviews, articles and information on Earth Science Week events, to help bring Earth science into the classroom. NASA has also contributed many resources to an educator kit designed to help teachers engage students in Earth science before, during and after this special week.
