K-12 Teachers

Enhance your knowledge of Earth system science and earn graduate credit through AMS Education’s teacher professional development programs. Over 22,000 teachers have boosted their STEM curriculum and impacted millions of students across the nation through these initiatives!

Summer Workshops

On-site professional development workshops all-expenses-paid and are offered each summer for a hands-on learning experience in Earth science. Both workshops involve a full week, on-site experience with online components both before and after the on-site portion.

 

DataStreme Program

Learn weather, ocean, or climate fundamentals through online courses emphasizing the study of Earth system science as it happens and discover ways to instill the excitement of real-world information across your science curriculum.

  • All three DataStreme courses are part of a master's level program offered through California University of Pennsylvania (Cal U)—successful participants will earn three graduate credits for each course.
  • Each course is 13 weeks long, completed online, and offered in the spring and fall.
