The ESIP teacher workshop will take place July 12th and 13th in Santa Fe 
New Mexico.
More information about the ESIP meeting can be found at

With support from NOAA, the ESIP Education committee will be hosting 20 
to 25 science teachers (middle and high school) for this two day event.

There are challenges and opportunities this year - the challenge is the 
lack of a computer lab - the opportunity is creating a presentation that 
goes beyond power-point to engage educators.
We have several lap tops we can use and will have wireless Internet. 
Also, we're considering purchasing iClickers to enable interactive 
presentations. Let us know if either of these would help your 
presentation. Each session will last about 45 minutes.

If you are interested in presenting please reply to this e-mail
<margaret.mooney at ssec.wisc.edu> with the following information:

Session Title:
Presenters Name:
Would iClickers help your session?
Would ~6 lap tops help your session?

By facilitating connections between ESIP members and G6-12 educators we 
hope to raise awareness around Federation capabilities and resources 
within the broader Earth system science community.

By presenting you will
    - gain increased visibility for your data and/or tools, and
    - be able to collect feedback directly from front-line educators.
    - the ESIP Ed committee will cover your registration fee!

If you plan to attend the summer meeting please consider participating 
in this exciting educational event.
