Title: NASA Precipitation Education: Societal Applications
Alternate Title: National Aeronautics and Space Administration Precipitation Education: Societal Applications
Url: https://gpm.nasa.gov/education/societal-applications
Publisher: Goddard Space Flight Center
Description: Drinking water, agriculture, extreme weather survival, climate change resilience, and other essential aspects of life depend on the availability of water and understanding its movement around the globe. NASA's Societal Applications collection of detailed lesson plans and other resources is designed for learners to apply knowledge of precipitation and the water cycle to real-life problems. The curricula encourage students to use real data from NASA research for activities such as forecasting which regions of the world may experience a change in freshwater availability, creating a climatogram for a U.S. city, and designing a building that can withstand a hurricane. In the menu on the right side of the landing page, users can browse the materials by type, audience, age of learner, or subtopic (e.g., freshwater resources or world health). Or, users can scroll to the bottom of the landing page to browse featured resources.
