Scientists, tell your story and be a part of the Fall semester Earth Explorers education opportunity. Help local Longmont, CO students to demystify science and technology and think BIG for the future!
Many NCAR scientists have already participated in this exiting project, and we are looking for 5 new candidates for the upcoming Fall 2014 Semester. This program allows you to work with a small group of middle school students with a college and teacher advisor, to tell your story and allow students to explore the science you are discovering through their eyes. Students will work with you to see your lab, get into your science, and make a mini-movie that tells your story for all.
It does not require a large committment on your part at all. Please reply asap to join in on the orientation process that will begin after Friday, Augut 15, 2014, which is the due date to be included in this year's Earth Explorer opportunity. If you have done Earth Explorers in the past, you may repeat if interested! Please spread the word and also get some new colleagues to get involved too. Important dates to check for participation include:
Introduction to your student group at Trail Ridge Middle School in Longmont, CO: September 24, 2014, 9 am to 1 pm (you can leave early if needed this day)
Interview session at your lab: October 15, 2014, 10 am to 1 pm
