Mission to Planet Earth Forums to Discuss Regional Science Curriculum

NASA Langley Research Center's Office of Education and Atmospheric Sciences Division will host a regional education forum August 9 to 11. The forum will focus on incorporating global environmental change issues into educational programs. These issues are related to NASA's Mission to Planet Earth studies.

Five representatives from each of seven states, including Virginia, will meet at NASA Langley and the Virginia Air and Space Center to discuss how to incorporate environmental change knowledge into local science curriculum. The state teams are comprised of scientists, educators, and administrators.

The forum will begin August 9 at noon with an opening address by NASA Langley director Paul Holloway. The forum will take place in room 200, Bldg. 1212, 17 West Taylor St. Other forums will take place simultaneously at six other NASA centers.
