Teaching about climate and energy? Our NOAA partner, the award-winning Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN) collection contains over 800 educational resources that are free, peer-reviewed, NGSS aligned, easily searchable, and ready-to-use for teaching about climate and energy including activities, lab demonstrations, visualizations, and videos. CLEAN partners with climate scientists and educators to review educational resources and also provides pedagogical support for teaching climate and energy topics through background knowledge webpages, a professional development toolkit, webinars, and a professional learning community to help educators.
Take your teaching about climate and energy to the next level with the CLEAN Webinar Series! Register for upcoming webinars or watch recordings of past webinars.
NOAA Planet Stewards Webinars are live broadcasts given by nationally recognized NOAA and NOAA partner scientists, educators and communicators. These events provide knowledge and resources that help educators build their understanding of NOAA related science as well as their pedagogic and communication skills.
The Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE) is a learner-centered framework that focuses on investigations into local environmental issues and leads to informed action. The MWEE Practitioner Webinar Series is hosted by the Chesapeake Bay Program and the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office to advance practice around delivering MWEEs.
The National Weather Service (NWS) National School Outreach team is ready to teach and answer your students' weather questions. Whether it is learning about weather basics, severe weather, the sun or space weather, or any other topic the teacher needs covered, the NWS, through Google Meet, Zoom, or Skype, jumps into the classroom to help teach these topics to elementary through high school students.

Bring the excitement of deep sea exploration LIVE to your classroom, science center, or community events! Shipboard interaction capabilities aboard Exploration Vessel (E/V) Nautilus enable students or the public to engage in a unique two-way, live Q&A dialogue with scientists, engineers, and educators of the Corps of Exploration. Live interactions are available free to any classroom or community audiences to introduce learners to the excitement of ocean exploration and increase access to career role models, thanks to the support of Ocean Exploration Trust's (OET) education partners.
The team will be exploring with seafloor mapping and remotely operated vehicle dives throughout Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument and around the Hawaiian islands from March 14 to mid-October 2022.

The 2022 GOES Virtual Science Fair (VSF) will be accepting projects from October 2021 to May 2022. Students can participate and submit individual projects from home or in small teams with classmates. The main requirement is using data from GOES-16 or GOES-17 to investigate weather and natural hazards. There will be three winning teams OR individuals: middle school, high school or grades 13/14 (community college or university).
Students from the winning teams will receive $25 gift cards.

The ACLIPSE course engages grade 6–12 teachers and teacher candidates in climate science/change activities using authentic data. ACLIPSE uses climate science as the context for applying current research about teaching and learning aligned with the Framework for K–12 Science Education. Educators and their students also improve their skills for using and interpreting real- and near real-time data. ACLIPSE includes instructional materials developed with NOAA's financial and scientific support.
NOAA's B-WET program funds locally relevant, authentic experiential learning for K-12 audiences through Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs). B-WET currently serves seven areas of the country: California, Chesapeake Bay, Gulf of Mexico, Hawaii, New England and the Pacific Northwest.
The CGLL is a collaborative effort led by Sea Grant educators throughout the Great Lakes watershed. The Center fosters informed and responsible decisions that advance basin-wide stewardship by providing hands-on experiences, educational resources and networking opportunities that promote Great Lakes literacy among an engaged community of educators, scientists and citizens.
