Good content, but typos & odd evaluation ?s
This SciPack had some good overall information, but I noticed numerous typos and I am sure one of the True/False questions has the incorrect answer regarding how many waxing crescent moons there are in one lunar cycle in the SciObject. (I believe the answer is 1, but the quiz says that is incorrect)
Also, the final evaluation has some very oddly worded questions and some that require the user to make some pretty educated inferences on content that was mentioned in the SciPack, but not exactly as the question is presented.

Great to re-learn this information
I had never had a college-level meteorology class, although I did take oceanography. This SciPack really helped me to have a better grasp of how the two are interrelated and gave me more confidence in teaching 8th grade level weather and climate in my earth science course.

I finally watched - better late than never!
I just wanted to see what a podcast was like from NSTA and had this one in my library from quite some time ago (The International Year of Astronomy was in 2009). It was quite a bit of old news obviously, but was good overall to watch the Powerpoint while hearing the narrator speak. I really need to find more recent ones to keep up to date on more current events in earth/space science.
The links at the end of the video were especially helpful for teaching astronomy.
