NICE consists of 71 education projects across the country that promote climate and Earth system science literacy using NASA's Earth observation data and Earth system models to reach teachers and students. The NICE projects advance understanding of how to effectively teach global climate change concepts, increase climate literacy, and contribute to the development of a diverse future workforce in climate-related sciences.
As part of their efforts, they are offering the opportunities for teachers shown below. More opportunities will be published on this page as they become available. So please check back often!
