DataStreme Program

The AMS has received major support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to conduct a Teacher Professional Development Project with a strong leadership component. In response, the DataStreme Project has been developed and is being implemented nationwide.  The DataStreme Project is an innovative set of internet-based distance-learning courses directed towards middle-school teachers, but open to all K-12 teachers. The course, DataStreme Atmosphere - focuses on the study of the atmospheric environment; DataStreme Ocean - explores the ocean in the Earth system; and DataStreme Earth's Climate System (ECS) - incorporates inquiry-based instructional strategies and a holistic concept of Earth from oceanic, atmospheric and terrestrial climate and problem-focused perspectives.
