List of Mentor Teams

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.

DataStreme Central, located at the AMS Education office, is a team that develops and provides instructional materials, gives logistical support to the Mentor Teams, engages California University of Pennsylvania and overall course delivery, and administers the program.

A list of Mentor Teams (alphabetical by state) and their contact information follows.
