MND recognizes that teaching science is about helping students make sense of the world around them, not memorizing facts and principles. MND makes teaching Earth Science easier (and more interesting) by organizing NASA data with the phenomena that they support.
The My NASA Data website offers a variety of opportunities to explore Earth Science phenomena of the Atmosphere, Biosphere, Cryosphere, Geosphere, and Hydrosphere using uniquely NASA related content. Come and explore the site to learn about the following content types in each of the sphere pages
The products of science are explanations and the products of engineering are solutions.
Scientists and engineers use and develop models for representing ideas and explanations.
Mathematical modelers use mathematics to create models that demonstrate complex processes or solve problems. Many mathematical modelers use their skills to create and animate 3D representations of their processes with the assistance of software technology.
An important scientific practice is the asking and refining of questions that lead to rich descriptions, explanations, and reasoning of how the natural and designed world works, as well as those investigations of variables that can be empirically tested.
At the core of scientific visualization is the representation of data graphically - through images, animations, and videos - to improve understanding and develop insight.
Students review Earth System phenomena that are affected by soil moisture. They analyze and evaluate maps of seasonal global surface air temperature and soil moisture data from NASA satellites.
Learn how the JASON-2 satellite measures ocean heights for a variety of purposes including monitoring of El Niño.
Science educators strive to engage students in authentic investigations that have students analyze data in order to derive meaning. MND provides unlimited opportunities to engage students in data analysis using Earth System data.
