We are facing large issues on Earth regarding climate change, resource management, species endangerment, earthquake mitigation, water management – just to name a few. However, the population's understanding of these complex topics is inadequate to meet the competency towards proper Earth stewardship and policy making. In the K-12 classroom, it is becoming increasingly more important to provide authentic learning experiences that will enable students to develop an understanding of Earth science. Your support of NESTA is vital in helping to prepare students to become the decision makers of tomorrow. Please consider the opportunity to "pay it forward" and help support Earth and space science teachers across the country. You can make a difference by making a donation to NESTA – through our online payment system. All donations are tax deductible. Donate here.
