GISN Webinar: Adventures of a scientist in the K-12 classroom - Dr. Lin Chambers

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 on Tuesday 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.
