Earth 2 Class: Bringing Science to Life in the Class Room

Michael Passow, Columbia University, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, White Plains Middle School

Earth2Class (E2C) is a unique science, math, and technology learning resource for K-12 students, teachers, and administrators. A distance learning site, it provides access to two hour courses via streaming video of lectures by Columbia University's world-renowned Lamont-Doherty research scientists. Drawing on these scientists' expertise, teachers can show students how the science they are learning applies outside the classroom, as well as to other aspects of their studies. The K-12 connection button takes you to a list of workshops provided by E2C, along with their related resources. The distance-learning button takes you to three-week course modules designed to help teachers improve their knowledge and understanding of issues in earth and environmental science. Within the mentoring section, teachers can access lesson plan templates developed using Earth 2 Class related materials and topics.
