This NASA-funded collaboration with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) builds on the success of GMRI’S existing LabVenture! Program to create new learning experiences focused on exploring the relationship between weather and climate. Educators and students will be able to interact with authentic NASA and NOAA data through a custom-built interface to study the effects of climate and weather in their specific region.
The grant will allow GMRI to update the LabVenture! technology, and develop new educational content that will not only be part of the interactive kiosks at GMRI, but will also be made web-accessible to visitors in other science centers and classrooms in Maine and nationwide. The new educational content is expected to be available for the 2018-2019 school year.
