What Is Making Your Neighborhood SO HOT? What Can YOU Do
Dr. Czajkowski, lead scientist on urban heat islands,
engages students to study their local environments by studying the surface
temperatures of their neighborhoods. Learn how to integrate this into your
classrooms by using My NASA Data’s story map and NASA satellite
In the session, each participant will download the Globe Observer App
(presenters will help with any technical problems participants' may have).
The participants will be asked to go outside and looks at the clouds in their
area. The clouds' data is tied to the Urban Heat Island Effect.
This session is targeted for novice attendees.
Takeaways: 1. Engage students in studying the heat islands in their neighborhoods; 2. Access, download, and compare their data to NASA satellite data; and 3. Interact with My NASA Data Urban Heat Island Story Map, which can be imported to their Google classrooms.
