This web seminar showed how to use data housed on NASA's My DATA Live Access Server. I loved that we could use atmospheric and earth science data collected by NASA, apply some filters, and generate graphs over a thirty year period. I also loved that we could using GPS coordinates compare different sites to each other. This is a powerful resource that I plan on using with my Earth Science and Physics classes.

This webinar provided hands on activities with NASA's My DATA Live Access Server, a tremendous data base. In particular we investigated solar energy graphs. I plan to use this data set with hands on STEM solar energy projects. http://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/las/getUI.do This is an outstanding resource.
