Welcome to the 2016 Satellite EARTH Workshop!
EARTH (Education and Research: Testing Hypotheses) provides teachers with means for accessing real-time data and integrating it with existing educational standards and tested curriculum through interactive and engaging activities. As an education/outreach component of MBARI (Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute), EARTH uses near-real-time data from ocean observatories to design and test outreach with the Internet as an interface to scientists, teachers, students, and the public.
