Earth2Class (Earth to Class/E2C)
is a unique
science/math/technology resource for K-12 teachers, students, the general
geoscientists. It is a collaboration among researchers and an Earth Science
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University;
specialists from Colégio Bandeirantes, São Paulo, Brasil; and classroom teachers
from New York, New Jersey, and elsewhere.
E2C centers around “Saturday
Workshops for Educators” held at Columbia's Lamont Campus in Palisades N.Y. One
key feature to E2C is involvement of LDEO scientists. Their availability through
workshops, web site postings, and e-mail allow teachers and students access to
cutting-edge research which can be used to develop learning activities directly
linked to “real-world problems,” and provide scientists with an effective format
to disseminate their discoveries more broadly. Since 1998, we have provided more
than 120 Workshops featuring over 80 LDEO scientists.
The easiest way to register for the Saturday Workshops:
send an e-mail to:
There is a $15
fee to attend each program, which covers lunch and other
expenses. You can attend
individual E2C workshops by completing this registration form. The
Lamont campus is normally closed on Saturdays,
so please pre-register so we can add your name to the Security
Gatehouse entry list.
All programs take place in the
Seismology-Marine Biology Building Seminar Room (unless a
special announcement is made about an alternate location.)

key to E2C is the ever-growing collection of educational resources available on
this web site, which provide teachers, students, and others access to up-to-date
information about our changing planet. These make our offerings available to
anyone, even if they cannot attend the live workshops. Use the Quick Links
at the left or pull-down menus at the top of each page to
explore these. Dr. Michael J Passow maintains these links.
