EARTH Workshop Application

EARTH > Workshops > Application

Applications are now being accepted for the 2023 workshop. To apply, please submit all application materials by February 14, 2023 at 0800 PST for consideration for the 2023 workshop.

Application Process

We strive to maximize engagement between workshop participants and the scientists who participate, and ensure that educators are able to work together in a variety of ways throughout the workshop. Because of this, we only have a limited number of spots available in each EARTH workshop and applications are required. The application process is outlined below. Workshop costs, including housing and food, are covered for all participants, and each participant will receive a travel allowance.

Application Requirements

  1. Complete the 2023 Application form (below) and submit any additional resources as appropriate. Be sure your answers to the questions clearly express your experience, background, and/or interest in the topic of using real-time data in your educational environment. Any supporting materials can be emailed to
  2. Applicants are required to try out one (or more) EARTH lesson in your classroom or institution and complete the online feedback rubric. We are especially interested in feedback from our more recent lessons (such as the ones developed at the 2022 or 2018 workshops) so we can update, revise, and publish them.

Returning teachers who have previously participated in an EARTH Workshop can make their application stronger by demonstrating a commitment to mentoring colleagues (hosting an in-service or EARTH Satellite workshop in your area), enhancing the EARTH resources (testing out Lessons in Development and providing extensive feedback or new resources to enrich our website), or disseminating EARTH content(presenting about EARTH at a meeting or conference). Please contact us if you have any questions about the application process.
