This year the EMBH Winter Academy will again be participating in NASA’s “S’COOL” project. S’COOL is a joint project of the Atmospheric Science Competency, Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC), and Office of Education at NASA’s Langley Research Center. Additional information and background materials can be found on the World Wide Web at http://scool.larc.nasa.gov. This year we think you will really want to participate because you may be selected to receive some cool prizes ;an iPod Nano for the “Grand Prize”, and four additional alumni will receive an OSU logo 4GB jump drive for participating. (Detailed instructions for participation are provided in the “S’Cool introduction and information” link below and in the mailing you will receive soon.)
We would like you to participate in two ways: 1) by reporting directly to NASA and; 2) by posting your observations and comments on our new Alumni Blog
- Participate in S’COOL by reporting your observation data by email, regular mail or fax. Information on the web site can be provided in Spanish by selecting the Espanol button near the top of the page. Información en el sitio web está disponible en español. Here is a link to NASA’s tutorial for S’Cool – http://science-edu.larc.nasa.gov/SCOOL/tutorial/overview/scool.html
- To post on the blog, click on your “camp year” in the menu to the right and add your comments to the “Winter Academy” post. You can post your ideas and observation here and also connect with your camp friends. Remember to only use your first name and year of camp in your post. Like this: Adam, 2008. Tell us what part of Oregon you are from: Portland/Metro, Willamette Valley, North, Middle or South Coast, Central, North Eastern, South Eastern or other:_________ (tell us where).
