Connect with a DataStreme Mentor Team

DataStreme courses are mentored by teams of dedicated teacher leaders and scientists across the country. Mentor teams provide personal contact and mentoring to approximately eight teacher participants each semester. Each team mentors participants on course concepts and activities, advertises the local course availability, and may arrange and hold in person or virtual field trips and enrichment opportunities beyond the core curriculum. Each team is ideally composed of an experienced K-12 teacher, a professional oceanographer, hydrologist, meteorologist or environmental scientist, and/or a faculty member.

Anyone wishing to take a DataSteme course must be paired with a Mentor Team in order to participate; this is in accordance with Step 1 of the DataStreme Enrollment Process. If you are already in touch with one of our Mentor Teams, please contact them for more information about their capacity to mentor you through your desired DataStreme course. If for any reason they cannot accept you in their cohort, please follow the below instructions to get re-paired with another team.

 

To be paired with a Mentor Team, you can take one of the two below actions (Please do not do both at the same time):

  1. You can fill out this Google Form, which will share your information with our network of Mentor Teams so that you can be paired with one of them.
    1. Please note that you will have to indicate which course you are most interested in taking in the upcoming semester (Atmosphere, Ocean, or Earth's Climate System), as participants may only take one DataStreme course per semester.
  2. You can reference the below list of Mentor Teams across the US and reach out to one of them to learn of their availability to accept you in their cohort.

After doing one of those options, you should be contacted by a Mentor Team with more information about participating in the upcoming semester. If you are not contacted by a team 2 weeks after taking one of these actions, please contact amsedu@ametsoc.org.

Once you are successfully paired with a DataStreme Mentor Team, instructions on how to proceed with the rest of the DataStreme Enrollment Process will be shared with you before the upcoming semester begins. We recommend that you stay in contact with your Mentor Team Leader in the meantime.
