NASA SCIENTISTS HELP LOCAL TEACHERS UNDERSTAND GLOBAL WARMING
As international leaders meet in Kyoto, Japan to discuss global warming and its long-term implications, local teachers will meet at NASA Langley to learn what global warming is really all about.
On Tuesday, Dec. 2, teachers from across Hampton Roads will spend the day learning about the Earth's climate and energy budget, and the effects of clouds on both of them. They will learn from NASA Langley scientists who are working to find answers to the global warming question, as well as many other climate questions. The teachers also will be given a variety of methods and teaching aids to better teach these subjects to their students.
The Atmospheric Science Educator Workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the NASA Langley H.J.E. Reid Conference Center in Hampton. The media are invited to attend the entire workshop or any portion of the workshop. Interviews and photo opportunities are available.
