The Earth2Class Workshops for Teachers at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University in Palisades, NY, provide an effective format for bringing cutting-edge research into K 13 classrooms. Through monthly workshops featuring LDEO investigators, summer professional development opportunities, and an ever-expanding web site (www.earth2class.org), the E2C program provides teachers and students with access to recent discoveries in a wide variety of geoscience areas. Earth2Class also connects teachers with pertinent online and print materials from the AMS DataStreme Atmosphere, Ocean, and Water in the Earth System programs. Participants in the DataStreme courses have been able to expand their understanding through visits to the LDEO facilities. Examples of these are provided in the poster.
