1 1 Stephanie Schollaert Uz and Phil Arkin (PI) Using satellite data on Science On a Sphere ® at museums to inform society through ClimateBits Goal: A general public who understands current climate issues and the importance of satellite data in monitoring the Earth System

2 2 Using satellite data on Science On a Sphere ® at museums to inform society through ClimateBits 110+ SOS sites around the world Museums, visitors centers, universities, and K-12 school systems Estimated 35 Million visitors per year see SOS Variety of programming: autorun, live shows by science staff or non-science staff

3 3 Using satellite data on Science On a Sphere ® at museums to inform society through ClimateBits large and growing catalog of SOS datasets managed by NOAA ESRL in Boulder global satellite and model data autorun movies using the sphere for science, art importance of storytelling What currently exists for SOS?

4 4 Using satellite data on Science On a Sphere ® at museums to inform society through ClimateBits Maryland Science Center, Baltimore MD fresh, relevant SOS content, current news items even better engaging format, easy for the public to understand autorun movies - docents not available in all locations and may lack background knowledge investigations to accompany SOS and enhance learning with hands-on component What do SOS sites want?

5 5 Using satellite data on Science On a Sphere ® at museums to inform society through ClimateBits Collaboration between UMD, NOAA, NASA Used on SOS or as a web reference by docents, teachers, public, policymakers Evaluation guides development Official press release planned for October Our answer? Short videos to explain global phenomenon and relevance to society:

6 6 Using satellite data on Science On a Sphere ® at museums to inform society through ClimateBits Example: Air Quality for NASA (Aura 10 th anniversary)

7 7 Using satellite data on Science On a Sphere ® at museums to inform society through ClimateBits Creating hands-on investigations in collaboration with NASA GSFC using NESO (NASA Earth & Space Observations): works with data displayed on SOS using an iPad app answer questions about SOS data: How does it vary over time and space? data analysis tool (point, line, region) What else? coming soon

8 8 Using satellite data on Science On a Sphere ® at museums to inform society through ClimateBits Additional ClimateBits in preparation - seasons - Intertropical Convergence Zone - monsoons - ozone hole - UV index - acid rain - carbon cycle What else? Mauna Loa Observatory

9 9 Using satellite data on Science On a Sphere ® at museums to inform society through ClimateBits © 2014 National Association of Geoscience Teachers [DOI: / ] In a case study, groups who saw SOS gained certain concepts better (e.g. atmospheric and oceanic circulation, changes over time) What does the public learn from Science On a Sphere?
