Data-enhanced Investigations for Climate Change Education

SRI provides user-friendly access to key types of Earth system data relevant to the study of climate, as well as background resources.

Funded by NASA, DICCE provides user-friendly access to a wide array of Earth system data from the NASA data portal Giovanni (i.e., the Goddard Interactive Online Visualization and Analysis Infrastructure), plus related curriculum materials. Users get free access to the data and learning supports that explain what the data are about, and free access to curriculum "projects" authored by researchers, students, and teachers about the data. Various projects include learning activities, presentations about the data, and assessments.

The project is examining how middle and high school science teachers use these resources to meet their instructional needs and what professional development strategies are most optimal for bringing about effective classroom implementation.
