This agency provides opportunities to teachers and students to work with researchers to learn applications or remote sensed data and to develop curricula which create both a stimulating and fruitful classroom experience. This session will offer an overview of NOAA and a discussion on the various opportunities available to teachers and students. Free materials will be given to the attendees.
