Theresa Schwerin

Theresa Schwerin is vice president for education programs at the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES). She leads the NASA Earth Science Education Collaborative (NESEC) cooperative agreement, which is a partnership between IGES and the Earth sciences at 3 NASA Centers: Goddard Space Flight Center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Langley Research Center. NESEC provides opportunities for learners – from K-grey – to contribute to NASA science. Using the free GLOBE Observer mobile app, volunteers in >120 countries can contribute to monitoring clouds, water (especially as a habitat for mosquitoes), plants (trees and other land cover), and help identify change over time. These data can be used to help interpret and augment NASA satellite data and are openly available to view and explore.
