The NOAA Planet Stewards book club had a terrific line-up during the 2018/2019 academic year. To see the books we read this year and other books we’ve discussed, have a look at our Book Club Archive Page. Below is general information for participating in our Book Club, we hope you’ll join us during the 2019/2020 academic year as we explore new and thought provoking topics.
NOAA Planet Stewards welcomes Dr Travis Miles, Assistant Professor in Rutgers University's Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences as our featured speaker this month.
Hurricanes are one of the deadliest and costliest natural disasters in the world. Our ability to predict where storms will make landfall has improved steadily, but it is still a challenge to predict a storms intensity or strength. Robots patrolling our coastal oceans are providing new opportunities to improve hurricane intensity forecasts and inform better response plans. In this talk you’ll learn how these heroic robots swim and survive into the eye of the storm to keep us safe.

Seriously, read thefollowing and save it for your reference:
Join educators and researchers from the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, the ACE Basin National Estuarine Research Reserve, the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium, and the Clemson University Cooperative Extension for this exciting workshop!
Water is a limited resource. More than 1,300 Illinois communities rely on water from Lake Michigan, inland surface water, and groundwater. Globally, more than two billion people are affected by water stress due to growing demands on water supplies and the increasing effects of climate change. Water is essential to all life. We must be responsible for its future.
In the Great Water Design Challenge, student teams will compete in research and design thinking to create innovative responses and solutions to address their selected water challenge. Teams will be provided with access to research, prototyping, and presentation materials to address their selected challenge. Experts will also be available for questions, conversations and insights as team work.
The Challenge is open to teams of 3-4 high school students and their faculty sponsor(s). Teams must arrange for their own transportation. Continental breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided. Awards will be presented to top performing teams. Space is limited to the first 20 schools that register.

Join NOAA Planet Stewards, NOAA’s Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) and the Aldo Leopold Nature Center(ALNC) for a two day workshop featuring hands-on activities for integrating climate, STEM, and data resources into your classroom or informal science curriculum.
DAY ONE: Engage in interactive investigations using phenological and historical data to illustrate climate change. Other activities include measuring water quality related to storm water runoff, and the impact of climate change on regional precipitation and the maple syruping industry. Connect the local to the global with resources you can access with your students in a classroom or outdoor settings.
DAY TWO: will take place on the University of Wisconsin’s Madison campus, birthplace of satellite meteorology. Learn about the newest Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) and how to access and investigate satellite imagery.
Participants will leave the workshop with fully equipped to apply to the 2020 NOAA Planet Stewards Stewardship Community and coach their students in using satellite data to investigate weather and natural hazards.
Educators attending both days will receive certificates of completion to apply towards CEU credits.
Reimbursement of up to $200 per participant is available to offset travel, hotel, substitute teacher fees or other workshop expenses. Complete this form if you will be requesting reimbursement.
A Continental breakfast, lunch, and light refreshments are included each day. Lodging is not provided.
