1 Earth Information Exchange Education Community A Crosscutting Theme to the Societal Benefits Areas A Demonstration

2 EIE Societal Benefits Areas Societal Benefit areas are focused on development resources that are of use to society at large Societal Benefit areas are focused on development resources that are of use to society at large Air QualityPublic Health Water ManagementDisaster Management Ecological ForecastingCoastal Management

3 EIE Societal Benefits Areas Scientific data and knowledge available in the Societal Benefit Areas is the result of ESIP partners scientific research Scientific data and knowledge available in the Societal Benefit Areas is the result of ESIP partners scientific research Federally funded scientific research programs require education and outreach components Federally funded scientific research programs require education and outreach components Result: individual educational materials. collections of materials, and educational programs have been developed Result: individual educational materials. collections of materials, and educational programs have been developed

4 Educational Materials and Resources Prairie to Mountain Explorer Exploring Earth – high school textbook and investigation guide Exploring Regional Differences in Climate Change – EOS Webster Museums Teaching Planet Earth: Earth Update, Space Update U.S. – Mexico Demographic Data Viewer Immersive Earth Planet Earth Science Expedition CDs
