26 Apr 2022 12:34 PM | NJSTA (Administrator)

Earth Day is just around the corner! If you’re looking for resources for the classroom, we have an archived series of webinars with Smithsonian scientists that you might find out of this world!

Explore the possibilities of digital learning through hands-on interactives based on the work of three innovative Smithsonian women scientists. With this suite of resources, accompanied by educator-targeted conversations exploring how to use them, take your classroom on an underwater adventurejourney through the jungles of Panama, or travel lightyears into outer space

The How to Be a Scientist: Smithsonian Women as Career Role Models project brings the stories and work of three contemporary Smithsonian scientists to your students through project kits of free, classroom-ready materials! Each kit highlights a scientist’s career journey and the importance of her work through educational resources including online interactives, 360° videos, classroom activities in a Smithsonian Learning Lab collection, and more. Use these suites of educational resources to bring the importance of climate change, the predator/prey dynamic, and the electromagnetic spectrum to your students! 

Check out the recordings of our series of live, educator-targeted conversations with each scientist focusing on the project kits below. In each session, we demonstrated the suite of educational resources and ended with the featured scientist answering audience questions:
