NASA Global Climate Change Education Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Global Climate Change Education (GCCE): Research Experiences, Modeling & Data National Aeronautics and Space Administration www.nasa.gov Dr. Lin H. Chambers, GCCE Project Scientist NASA Langley Research Center Interagency Webex, March 15, 2010
  • 2. Further Information
    • Written questions can be submitted to
    • [email_address]
    • Nothing stated today should be construed as a revision to the Cooperative Agreement Notice unless a formal revision is made later.
  • 3. GCCE Project Goals
      • Goal 1: improve the teaching and learning about global climate change in elementary and secondary schools, on college campuses, and through lifelong learning;
      • Goal 2: increase the number of people, particularly high school and undergraduate students, using NASA Earth observation data, Earth system models, and/or simulations to investigate and analyze global climate change issues;
      • Goal 3: increase the number of undergraduate students prepared for employment and/or to enter graduate school in technical fields relevant to global climate change.
    GCCE CAN Section 1.1
  • 4. Funding Categories
    • D/M (Data/Models): Using NASA Earth system data, interactive models and simulations to strengthen teaching and learning about Global Climate Change
    • R (Research): Global climate change science research experiences for undergraduate or community college students and pre- or in-service teachers including those in nontraditional teacher licensure programs.
    • Proposals may address one or both categories.
    GCCE CAN Section 1.3
  • 5. NASA Education Outcomes - I
    • The GCCE project directly supports Outcomes 1 and 2 of the NASA Education portfolio by contributing to the accomplishment of the following specific associated objectives:
    • Objective 1.2 Higher Education: Student Support —Provide NASA competency-building education and research opportunities to individuals to develop qualified undergraduate students who are prepared for employment in STEM disciplines at NASA, industry and higher education.
    • Objective 1.3 Higher Education: Student Involvement Higher Education —Provide opportunities for groups of post-secondary students to engage in authentic NASA-related, mission based research and development activities.
    • Objective 1.4 Higher Education: Course Development —Develop NASA-related post-secondary course resources for integration into STEM disciplines.
    GCCE CAN Appendix A
  • 6. NASA Education Outcomes - II
    • Objective 2.1 Elementary and Secondary Education: Educator Professional Development – Short Duration —Provide short duration professional development and training opportunities to educators, equipping them with the skills and knowledge to attract and retain students in STEM disciplines.
    • Objective 2.2 Elementary and Secondary Education: Educator Professional Development Long Duration —Provide long duration and/or sustained professional development training opportunities to educators that result in deeper content understanding and/or confidence in teaching STEM disciplines.
    • Objective 2.3 Elementary and Secondary Education: Curricular Support Resources —Provide curricular support resources that use NASA themes and content to a) enhance student skills and proficiency in STEM disciplines; b) inform students about STEM career opportunities; and c) communicate information about NASA’s mission activities.
    • Objective 2.4 Elementary and Secondary Education: Student Involvement K-12 —Provide K-12 students with authentic first-hand opportunities to participate in NASA mission activities, thus inspiring interest in STEM disciplines and careers.
    GCCE CAN Appendix A

      • Information provided in NOI’s is of considerable value to both the proposer & NASA as it is used to help expedite the proposal-review activities
    • Separate NOI should be submitted for each intended proposal
    • May be submitted directly by the PI once the PI is registered in NSPIRES
    • Submit via NSPIRES (grants.gov does not support NOI submission)
    • Late NOI’S are still of value to NASA

  • 16. Submission Requirements
    • All proposals must be submitted electronically via NSPIRES or grants.gov ( http://grants.gov ) by the authorized organization representative (AOR)
