Geography Educators Outreach for Earth Knowledge Acquired by Middle School Students

A unique workshop to prepare 20 master geography educators teaching in grades 5 to 12 to participate with their students in an ISSEarthKAM mission.

ISSEarthKAM engages students in an inquiry-based mission to target, acquire, and analyze images from a camera on the International Space Station.

GEOEarthKAM, a National Geographic Society Education Foundation funded project, will train participants to conduct an ISSEarthKAM mission with their students by leading participants through the process during the first-ever summer ISSEarthKAM mission, July 6-13, 2003.

  • Practice in mentoring and professional development strategies to engage additional geography educators in ISSEarthKAM in order to build a GEOEarthKAM community.
  • A complete set of curriculum support materials to implement GEOEarthKAM activities.
  • $300 mini-grant to disseminate information about GEOEarthKAM to home Alliances.
