Lin Chambers Lin Chambers is the director of the S’COOL and MY NASA DATA Projects, as well as the contrail scientist for the GLOBE Program. She received her education in aeronautical/aerospace engineering. After 10 years of work on problems relating to spacecraft reentering Earth’s atmosphere after visits to Earth orbit, the Moon, and Mars, she switched over to the related problem of radiative transfer in the atmosphere itself (without man-made objects). She is interested in the effects of clouds on the movement of solar radiation, as well as engaging students and the public with NASA science.
Tina Harte Tina Harte received her B.S. in Human Learning K-8 and her M.S. in Science Education with an emphasis in Earth and Space Science from the University of Tennessee at Martin. She taught middle school science for 18 years in the state of Tennessee and is currently Team Lead for the NASA LaRC Science Directorate Outreach and Education Team. She previously served two years as President of the Tennessee Earth Science Teachers Association in addition to serving on the Tennessee State Leadership Team for the development of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). She works with the MY NASA DATA, S’COOL and GLOBE Project as education specialist focusing on the development of science curriculum resources, bringing NASA to the classroom.
