Climate Literacy & Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN)

The CLEAN project, a part of the National Science Digital Library, provides a reviewed collection of resources coupled with the tools to enable an online community to share and discuss teaching about climate and energy science. http://cleanet.org  Here is a short video that shows how to navigate the CLEAN resources web site and some of what can be found there http://cleanet.org/clean/community/webinars/screencast  A presentation on the Climate Literacy Network call on Jan 31, 2012 that provides an overview of the services that the CLEAN project can provide to efforts that are developing climate change education materials.  The slides (which includes screencasts) and an audio recording of the presentation appears at  http://cleanet.org/cln/telecon_schedule.html

The GLOBE Program

The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program is a worldwide hands-on, primary and secondary school-based science and education program. GLOBE’s vision promotes and supports students, teachers and scientists to collaborate on inquiry-based investigations of the environment and the Earth system working in close partnership with NASA, NOAA and NSF Earth System Science Projects (ESSP’s) in study and research about the dynamics of Earth’s environment.

 Science Education Resource Center (SERC)

The Science Education Resource Center (SERC) works to improve education through projects that support educators. Although our work has a particular emphasis on undergraduate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education, we work with educators across a broad range of disciplines and at all educational levels. An office of Carleton College, our work is funded primarily through National Science Foundation grants. The office has special expertise in effective pedagogies, geoscience education, community organization, workshop leadership, digital libraries, website development and program and website evaluation.
