Celebrate Earth Science Week With NASA Materials – October 10-16, 2010

“Exploring Energy” is the theme of this year’s Earth Science Week, Oct. 10-16, 2010. The American Geological Institute hosts Earth Science Week annually in cooperation with various sponsors to engage people in Earth science and encourage stewardship of Earth.

During Earth Science Week, a series of short videos will be posted to NASA’s Earth Science Week website at http://climate.nasa.gov/esw2010/. The videos will contain short experiments related to energy, such as the energy that fuels hurricanes. Educators may use the videos in their classrooms.

NASA has contributed materials in an educator kit designed to help teachers engage students in Earth science before, during and after this special week. For more information, including a video with information about the educator kits, visit NASA’s one-stop shop for Earth Science Week resources and materials at http://climate.nasa.gov/esw2010/

NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio has additional educator resources related to energy at http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/Gallery/EnergyEssentials.html
