Bringing remote sensing and astronomical data to life for students is a challenge for earth and space science educators. This session will engage teachers and scientists in a participatory design process that will demonstrate the power of data science, identify challenges in teaching and learning, and seek pathways to develop next generation tools and curricula to close the gap between science practice and education. This workshop extends an NSF convergence accelerator for earth and space data and will also help inform an upcoming NSF-funded workshop titled: Data Science for High School Computer Science: Identifying Needs, Gaps and Resources.
We are proposing a working session, working directly with teachers on tool development using a participatory design kind of approach. The ESIP Education Committee is working to identify DC-area schools to work with over the long term, and this session could be a good first step in that relationship. For this workshop, a minimum of three DC-area teachers will work with ESIP Education Committee members and facilitators.

  • There are many tools that already exist but they need to be more easily connected to the curriculum
  • There are constraints to which tools schools can use because they cannot have blogging features and present other security risks. Also, they have limited technological availability

I discovered ESIP in the summer of 2009 when I was teaching science in Santa Barbara and attended the Summer meeting there. Ever since then, I have been volunteering with the ESIP Education Committee in various capacities, serving as Chair in 2013, 2019, and 2020.
