    Accessibility statement: Our NSF REU/RET Site and learning community is committed to including and supporting students and teachers with identities that are commonly underrepresented in the field sciences. Specifically, program faculty and staff have experience in supporting and mentoring students with disabilities, and we have partnered with the International Association for Geoscience Diversity ( in this effort.

    Research directions: Work with community partners and mentors from University of Central Florida, Esri, University of Belize, and The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural Historys Caribbean Coral Reef Ecosystems Program. Research Direction 1: Leveraging community geography & GIS to map disparities in flooding. Research Direction 2: Leveraging community geography & GIS to reduce waste and prevent marine debris.

    Funding: $4200 research stipend, $750 for post-REU conference travel or industry visits, technology support, and all expenses covered for 2023 Belize fieldwork.

    CLEAN Professional Develpment Webinar Series will take your teaching about climate and energy to the next level.

    Webinar: A New Tak on the Water Cycle Virtual Professional Development. 

    Thursday, February 16, 2023, 1:00 pm PT | 2:00 pm MT | 3:00 pm CT | 4:00 pm ET

    Full-time pre-K-12th grade teachers:  Professional Develpment: Registration deadline: February 15, 2023

    Webinar Description:

    "Water cycle diagrams are widely used by educators to convey core scientific principles about water storage and movement on Earth. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) recently redesigned its water cycle diagram, putting humans at the forefront. The new diagram emphasizes scientific accuracy, design, and usability in educational settings. Educators were key contributors to the design of the new diagram – USGS heard from hundreds of educators about how they use the water cycle diagram in their instruction and incorporated their feedback into the design. During this webinar, USGS scientists will share information about the basis and importance of the new diagram, as well as the science it depicts."

    Science and Engineering Practices for Online Air Quality Education Webinar

    Educators of 5-12:  STIPEND, Curriculum Reviewer:  Information Webinar 12/6 & 12/7

    Organized by the A&WMA K12 Education Committee. This webinar will introduce Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) to middle and high school science teachers across the US and Canada and share an exciting paid opportunity with teachers to bring Air Quality into their science classrooms. The K12 Education Committee recently updated some of its Environmental Education Resource Guides (EERGs), starting with air quality. 

    • Tuesday, December 6, 2022 5:00 to 6:00 pm ET (2:00 to 3:00 pm PT)
    • Tuesday, December 6, 2022 8:00 to 9:00 pm ET (5:00 to 6:00 pm PT)
    • Wednesday, December 7, 2022 5:00 to 6:00 pm ET (2:00 to 3:00 pm PT)
    • Wednesday, December 7, 2022 8:00 to 9:00 pm ET (5:00 to 6:00 pm PT)

    We are using the webinar sessions to recruit middle and high school science teachers to pilot the AQ6-12 lesson in their classroom and provide the K12 Education Committee with feedback. Selected teachers may earn a $1,000.00 stipend during the Spring 2023 semester for completing all tasks. Teachers from public, charter, and private or independent schools who teach environmental science topics in their science classrooms are eligible to apply. We anticipate about 10 hours of work. Middle and high school science teachers in private, public, and charter schools are eligible to participate. We strongly encourage Title I middle and high school science teachers to submit an application as well as middle and high school science teachers from schools in areas chronically exposed to poor air quality. 

    The short term goal is to apply teacher feedback to improve the AQ6-12 lesson for national distribution. The long term goal is to provide students and their teachers with the fundamental concepts and skills to become aware of Air Quality issues and consider actions that protect clean air.
