NESTA publications serve the K-12 Earth and Space Science classroom teacher. These include:
- a peer-reviewed quarterly journal, The Earth Scientist
- monthly E-News that keeps you informed about NESTA and ESTA events, teacher and student opportunities, (e.g. fellowships, grants, contests, awards, and more) along with current issues in Earth Science research
The Earth Scientist (TES)
The Summer 2016 issue of TES was sponsored by Temple University. The Spring 2016 issue of TES was sponsored by NOAA. Both are freely available below via Open Access. Open Access articles and issues are freely available to anyone on the NESTA website. Thees PDFs may be downloaded and shared by re-posting to other websites and by circulating them via electronic means such as email. In the TES archives, members can view all previous issues of TES, while nonmembers will only be able to view articles and issues that are Open Access.
