LEARN - Long-term Engagement in Authentic Research with NASA

  What does LEARN Research look like?

The LEARN program provides opportunities for on-site and off-site research throughout the year! Some of the cutting-edge NASA science mission work that teachers can engage with include CAPABLE, CALIPSO, and DISCOVER-AQ.

July 7-11 & 14-18 2014

During the on-site portion, Educators will:

  • Receive approximately 70 hours of professional development during the summer training
  • Select an atmospheric science topic of interest
  • Begin research on-site with their Research Team and NASA scientist mentor
  • Receive GLOBE atmosphere training and certifications

Continued summer research

After the two-week visit, LEARN educators will:

  • Continue to interact with their research team with weekly virtual collaboration meetings
  • Get input from other team members and their NASA scientist mentor
  • Participate in a Data Meeting webinar with the entire cohort to present the progress of their work at the end of the summer

School-year research

Once teachers return to their classroom, they will:

  • Continue collaborations with their NASA scientist mentor and their Research Team through monthly webinars
  • Collaborate on how to integrate their research project into classroom lessons for their students
  • Prepare their research for the final poster in July 2015
  • Present their work at the poster session either at NASA Langley or virtually
