Space science resources in Wavelength that use authentic data offer you a taste of what NASA does best – provide unique learning experiences for you to hone your science skills, using real space science data from some of the most technologically advanced space telescopes and space probes ever developed.
With NASA's comprehensive constellation of Earth-observing satellites, it should come as no surprise that there is a great deal of Earth science data available through Wavelength for use by educators. This blog post explores some of the excellent Earth science related educational resources available.
Welcoming authentic NASA data into the classroom supports the "Practices" dimension of the Next Generation Science Standards by encouraging analysis and interpretation of data. NASA missions generate troves of scientific data; whether gathered by peering into deep space or sampling Earth’s atmosphere, these data form the core of NASA science research. This series of blog posts aims to connect educators with data-driven educational resources.
