Welcome to the Winter Meeting for the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)! The 2017 theme is Strengthening Ties Between Observations and User Communities. The theme is based on one of the goals in the 2015 - 2020 ESIP Strategic Plan, which provides a framework for ESIP’s activities over the next three years.

Sharing ESIP Educational Resources via 10 Minute Webinars & building a Video Library

The rapid pace of technology provides an opportunity for educational updates around new data tools and techniques. ESIP Education will kick-off an initiative in 2017 featuring a series of short webinars showcasing ESIP member resources. Each presentation will be recorded and archived, building a library of data tool vignettes that anyone can access. Content will be geared toward educators teaching grades 7-13. Tentatively called “Out to Lunch” the series will commence in February and be offered every-other week during the school year. Educators will know before logging on that presentations will only last 10 minutes long, with up to 10 minutes Q&A.

This winter meeting session will introduce the series and quickly move into 5 or 6 demos that will become the first to populate the video library.  Here are our initial topics and speakers:

ESIP Education Drone E-book - Debut of "Have a Drone? Try this!", LuAnn Dahlman, NOAA Climate Program Office & Shelley Olds, UNAVCO http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/ESIP_Drone_Activities
Using NOAA's Data in the Classroom for formal education - Dan Pisut, NOAA's Environmental Visualization Lab, http://dataintheclassroom.noaa.gov/
GOES-R Educational WebApps - activities that demonstrate Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) capabilities. Margaret Mooney, CIMSS, http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/education/goesr/webapps
ClimateBits & NEO – tools to explore Earth science concepts easily. Stephanie Schollaert Uz, NASA, https://neo.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/ & http://climatebits.umd.edu/
GPS Velocity Viewer - exploration of geodetic plate velocities. Shelley Olds, UNAVCO, http://www.unavco.org/software/visualization/GPS-Velocity-Viewer/GPS-Vel...
Climate Explorer - Interactive maps and graphs of climate observations and projections through 2100 for every county in the contiguous United States. LuAnn Dahlman, NOAA Climate Program Office, https://toolkit.climate.gov/climate-explorer2/

The session will conclude with a discussion on best practices moving forward and brainstorming future speakers from the ESIP community. We welcome submissions for future talks that will start in February.
Here is our current list:
1) Building classroom data activities with free, easy to use tools from NOAA
2) Solar Eclipse resources
3) CIMSS Climate Data Portal (CDP)
4) Visualizing data via RealEarth, on desktops or mobile devices
