# MY NASA DATA: Nutrients in Chesapeake Bay

In this problem-based data analysis activity, students assume roles as members of an International Team of Marine Biologists, tasked with predicting and monitoring possible harmful algae blooms. Students use data maps and guiding questions, to... (View More)

# MY NASA DATA: March of the Polar Bears: Global Change, Sea Ice, and Wildfire Migration

In this data analysis activity, Students will use NASA satellite data to study temperature and snow-ice coverage in the South Beaufort Sea, Alaska. The data can be used to correlate with USGS ground tracking of polar bears, and to relate this to... (View More)

# MY NASA DATA: Fostering Geospatial Thinking: Space to Earth: Earth to Space (SEES)

In this activity, students will identify, compare and contrast multiple geo-referenced Earth data sets, and understand that Global Information Systems (GIS) are composed of geo-referenced data layers. Students compare ocean buoy data with satellite... (View More)
