    NESTA is really proud to of our journal, The Earth Scientist (TES).  Shout-out to our current editor, Peg Steffen who has curated, organized and published outstanding and informative issues these past years.  By happen-stance I started poking around our website and found that access to TES was a bit confusing and needed some updating to preserve our member benefit as well as highlight our sponsored issues.  Check out our updates and I encourage you to spend time with our past issues.    I hope to find a member or members to work with that will do exactly that so we can highlight some articles that are "oldies, but goodies" to share with the public!  If you are interested in librarian sort of position, let me know.

    So as we inch closer to our big splash at the National Science Teachers Association Meeting, we are in full throttle mode preparing resources to share along with PD events and our Friends of Earth Science Reception.  Will you be at NSTA, Atlanta in March?  If so, let me know if you have a presentation you would like us to highlight or resource you are interested in sharing at the event.   Busy weekend coming up!

    Our Community Project Working Group has powered on to prepare our first Community Data Exploration Project!   We hope that we can engage teachers and classrooms while supporting teachers offering opportunities for authentic scientific investigation.     Registration for our first project will start in March!  Stay tuned..

    So.. I'm so excited for Thursday's meeting..   

    Representatives from NOAA and NESTA are getting together to discuss how NESTA can help NOAA bring the Ocean Today resources to more classrooms..    I learned today, our idea spurred on NOAA to offer a NSTA workshop just to introduce the Ocean Today resources.... We (the NESTA crew) will follow up with a session that helps teachers extend the resources to model using the resources for cooperative learning, addressing cross-cutting concepts and using science practices.  We'll give you the ideas and you run with it...  An opportunity to learn, create and share!...  My favorite type of professional development...  Now... just need to figure out to best do this without Internet access in Atlanta...    Stay tuned...  

    This is a great opportunity for teachers to have a peer-reviewed and  published lesson.   I would love to make this a NESTA thing...   Hmm.. "NESTA CREATES".  You will have a unique opportunity to highlight published work on your applications for science PD that we teachers love, love, like NOAA Teacher at Sea, AMS Project Ocean and Project Atmosphere and Polar-Trec.   Contact me if interested...

    So, I'm a huge advocate for students participating in authentic science investigations.  To that end, I met today with John McLaughlin form NOAA to chat a bit how NESTA can help support their service-learning projects..  If you are interested in joining the conversation, do lmk.

    Looking forward to NSTA- Atlanta..   Once the schedule comes out..  we'll announce again!

    NESTA Collaborates with NOAA to Help Connect Students to our Nation’s Changing Coasts
    Our coasts are changing. Join the National Earth Science Teachers Association to explore creative ways to use NOAA Ocean Today video assets for sense-making of phenomena using cross-cutting concepts. Help your students discover personal connections to our coastal systems.

    A President's Essential Question
