Join us on Thursday, May 5, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm Eastern time to learn about weather and the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission.

Types of weather, weather basics, extreme weather, monitoring extreme weather with satellites, and hands on investigations for students to collect data about weather- including GLOBE protocols, are topics that will be covered during this seminar. The presenters will also talk about the difference between weather and climate and will describe ground validation campaigns.

The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) is an international satellite mission (NASA and JAXA) to provide next-generation observations of rain and snow. The GPM mission will help advance our understanding of Earth's water and energy cycles, improve the forecasting of extreme events that cause natural disasters, and extend current capabilities of using satellite precipitation information to directly benefit society.

All participants will receive a certificate of participation and 100 Learning Center activity points for attending and completing the post-program evaluation. An archive and presentation slides will be available at the end of the program.

Join us on Tuesday, March 22, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm Eastern time, and participate in this web seminar focused on the role of educational leadership as it relates to the teaching of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

The STEM education landscape is rapidly changing with the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the release of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). In this context it is increasingly important to have informed educational leadership at all levels--from teachers to principals to district leaders and community partners—who together will ensure sustainable reform in STEM education. The Smithsonian Science Education Center has been working for over thirty years to identify strategies for growing leaders in science education. In this webinar we will share results from a recent 5-year rigorous i3 study of our Leadership and Assistance for Science Education Reform (LASER) model and discuss the role of the instructional leader in the changing STEM landscape.

All participants will receive a certificate of participation and 100 Learning Center activity points for attending and completing the post-program evaluation. An archive and presentation slides will be available at the end of the program.
