NOAA Expands Education Portal

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has just completed a major update of the agency’s primary education resource portal; the website Education.noaa.gov.

The aim is to better connect educators and students interested in NOAA’s education and science resources. The website serves as a portal to lesson plans, educational multi-media, data sources, career profiles, and other education content from across the agency.

The content contains five themes. Teachers can find information about hurricanes, tides, climate change, the water-cycle or other earth science topics on the site. The site also provides information on professional development, academic scholarships, career exploration, and education grants.

Online Chat: DJ Kachman, the Veterans Affairs Department’s director of mobile and security technology transformation lead, on April 10, at 1 p.m.

NOAA’s mission is to understand and predict changes in the Earth’s environment, and to conserve and manage coastal and marine resources.
