National Center for Earth and Space Science Education Launches new Blog on the Universe

The newly launched Blog on the Universe is dedicated to helping teachers and parents make science an adventure. Every week you can use Dr. Jeff's new conceptual nuggets and challenges to foster deep and inspiring discussions in the classroom and at home. The idea is to help make the nature of the world understandable to students, and teachable by teachers, so we can take a ride to the frontiers of human exploration---together.

Besides the compelling posts, the blog includes Resource Pages on the nature of our existence in a greater universe, the art of teaching, the power of models in learning environments, powerful quotes on human exploration, a look at climate change, and resource lists for teachers, parents, and community leaders.

Get emotional about science. Visit Dr Jeff's Blog on the Universe
