Become a global Citizen Scientist! Make your own local environmental observations, in particular cloud cover, that can compliment NASA satellite observations. Why are clouds important? How can we help monitor cloud conditions? In this digital skill, we will use the Globe Observer App to help answer these questions and become a Citizen Scientist.

Join the GLOBE observer App community to help collect scientific data for NASA, students and other scientists worldwide.

Scratch is a great tool to use with students of all ages and abilities because of its low floor/high ceiling/wide walls approach to learning. In Part 2, we will explore some ideas to get teachers thinking about ways to use Scratch as another tool for students to showcase their learning.

L'idée fait partie du processus de création. Comment la pensée créative peut-elle influencer l'apprentissage dans cette nouvelle normalité ? Rejoignez-nous pour un atelier-conversation en ligne interactif et amusant. Après cette session, les enseignants disposeront d'un guide pratique pour mettre en œuvre le processus créatif dans leur enseignement virtuel.

Join Jacob Lingley while he and his special guests, Mary Webber and Natacha Vautour demonstrate how to draw the inspiring Circle of Life with nothing more than a compass. Then take your new knowledge of fractals and reimagine them using CodeBlocks in TinkerCAD. This bilingual presentation will explore the intersection of math, artistic expression and technology.

Circle Packing

Welcome to an exploration of algorithmic art. In this Digital Skill, students will use Scratch to create an abstract piece of art that is created by code. We call this algorithmic art since your art piece will be created by an algorithm - or a set of rules. For instance can you create a Circle Packing algorithm in Scratch such that a series of circles randomly appear but never touch or overlap?

Students will want to check out our Circle Packing sample here - feel free to remix it and make it your own.
