Welcome to the Circle of Illumination Science Education site! The mission of this company is to provide high quality professional development to teachers who teach grades 3-8 in the fields of atmospheric and earth science and geography.
Weather is a complex phenomena made up of several variables that each change over time but also often interact with each other. Fortunately many weather-related phenomena can be sensed or observed directly as well as illustrated with data that is available through a number of government web sites which fosters sense-making.
JOIN US for the second in a series of free webinars offered in the spring of 2021 "ILLUSTRATING THE IMPACT of AIR MASSES on WEATHER WITH THE USE OF REAL-TIME WEATHER WEB SITES" to be given online on SATURDAY, MAY 22, 2021 NOON – 2:00 pm. TWO CEUs.
The unusually hot weather we had over Easter weekend—and the precipitation and dramatic drop in temperatures that subsequently occurred -- are a great illustration of the powerful role that air masses have on our weather. Air masses can also influence changes in air quality because of the development of inversions. But what can be more thrilling than to be able to correlate such phenomena with real-time data and/or maps—including satellite imagery-- that can be found on the Internet? Dr. Amy Lilienfeld, President and Founder of Circle of Illumination Science Education, invites 6th grade teachers in Minnesota to participate in a webinar that will help them learn how to harness the power of such web sites to track such changes while deepening their content mastery of atmospheric science and helping them get ideas for many hands-on activities in data collection and visualization. TO REGISTER CONTACT DR. LILIENFELD at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 pm on May 15th.
