Venus transits the sun.
On June 5 2012, the Solar Dynamics Observatory collected images of the rarest predictable solar event--the transit of Venus across the face of the sun. This event lasted approximately 6 hours and happens in pairs eight years apart, which are separated from each other by 105 or 121 years. The last transit was in 2004 and the next will not happen until 2117. Footage courtesy of Goddard Space Center

Science Bulletins:As Antarctic Ice Melts, Wildlife Shifts
The Antarctic Peninsula is a spit of land that extends off the continent toward South America. Its western side is, on average, warming five times faster than any other place on Earth. The warming is disintegrating the massive ice shelves that extend from the peninsula's land into the sea. As a result, a number species that depend on ice to survive are declining locally, including Antarctic krill and Adélie penguins, which eat krill. A new study led by Martin Montes-Hugo at the Rutgers Institut

This activity provides a job description for the presidency, so students understand what kinds of skills and competencies are necessary in that office. Students have the opportunity to role play the president for a day, making decisions about different events that a president might actually experience (meetings with Cabinet members, speeches to the public, bowling in the White House).
This site from SERC's Starting Point provides a brief list of online GIS data sources, tools, and mapping utilities meant to give instructors a starting point for learning to use GIS in the classroom.
Blip Snips is an easy to use web tool that lets users create a video bookmark and then share specific parts of a video. Creating video tags or bookmarks allows users to find content quickly and efficiently. This is also an easy way to edit out some of the extraneous content of a video that might be great in the classroom. This is a great resource to help enhance technology instruction and application in the classroom. (2:28)
