This presentation will also summarize the 2010 ESIP (Earth Science Information Partners) teacher workshop in Knoxville TN where CIMSS organized an educators workshop with support from the NOAA NESDIS Education Office. ESIP is a unique consortium of scientific organizations that collect, interpret and develop applications for remotely sensed data. Over two dozen educators participated in the 3 day event with presentations by ESIP members from NOAA, NASA, EPA, DOE, CIMSS, UNH and UCSB. About a third of the attendees were part of the new NOAA Climate Stewards Education Program, a national network that has been meeting via teleconference since January 2010. The ESIP teacher workshop marked the first face-to-face meeting of a subset from this pilot project.
Educational CDs featuring the 2010 version of SAGE will be distributed at this AMS session as well as information about the 2011 Climate Stewards Program and the 2011 ESIP teacher workshop scheduled for Albuquerque New Mexico.
