Organization Profiles

In preparation for the 2015 Summit, institutions and organizations were asked to profile the kinds of resources they had that could be of use in helping implement the Earth and space science part of the NGSS. Remembering that the NGSS-ESS consists of 3 main sections: Earth's Place in the Universe, Earth's Systems, & Earth and Human Activity, organizations provided information about their resources in several topical areas. To browse through resources for a particular topical area, click on the relevant term in the listing at the right side of the page.

At present, only Summit participants can view the full profiles for each organization. We will be working with the participants to finish and publish their profiles publicly.

If you would like to profile your organization's resources for helping to implement the NGSS, fill out this information form to generate your profile.

Arizona State University, School of Earth and Space Exploration
The ASU School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE, pronounced "see-see") combines Earth and space science and engineering research and education in a single academic unit, to achieve a better understanding of the universe and, especially, our home world. SESE unites Earth and planetary scientists, astronomers, and engineers. The word "exploration" in our name is indicative of our approach. For centuries, the quest for scientific knowledge has been an important driver for human exploration and SESE is dedicated to expanding the frontiers of knowledge through the exploration of Earth, space, matter, time and life. Increasingly, successful exploration depends on a mastery of engineering theory and practice in order to create and adapt technologies for scientific applications. Our research and educational programs are designed explicitly to emphasize the importance of technology in modern science. Borrowing from the expedition of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, we think of the SESE community as a "Corps of Discovery" for the 21st Century.
