Know Your Earth 3.0: Local Connections
"Know Your Earth 3.0, Local Connections" is a partnership among 22 of NASA's Earth-observing missions. This educational project focuses on educating students, teachers and the public about cutting-edge NASA Earth science research. Each mission has selected a scientist or engineer to be featured on NASA websites throughout April 2013, and many will be speaking about their work at NASA to schools, youth groups and other organizations in their hometowns. One of Know Your Earth 3.0's main objectives is to provide a local hometown connection to students and the general public and to inspire them into the next generation of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers.
