The GLOBE Program Office (GPO) invites scientists interested in working with GLOBE schools to participate in the second GLOBE International Scientist Network (GISN) interactive webinar onTuesday 26 March.
Adventures of a Scientist in the K-12 Classroom
Hosted by Dr. Lin Chambers, NASA Scientist
After completing her PhD in 1991, "so she would never have to go to school again", Lin Chambers stepped back into a classroom in January 1997 to talk with middle school kids about a NASA citizen science project. Since then Lin has spoken with students from kindergarden through high school, in multiple states and on three continents, in two and a half languages, in person and through virtual connections. Despite this experience, each visit to a classroom is a new adventure. Lin will share some lessons learned from her experiences that may benefit other scientists contemplating a return to the classroom.
Dr. Lin Chambers is a physical scientist in the Science Directorate at the NASA Langley Research Center. She leads the MY NASA DATA project to make real NASA Earth-observing data accessible to the K-12 and citizen science communities. Currently she serves as the Project Scientist for the NASA Innovations in Climate Education project.
