    There is a Webinar opportunity Sept 12 (will be recorded) to learn to use an app that could give your café teens the opportunity, during the first 2 weeks of November, to be part of a REAL global experiment that will help create a map to view clouds from above and below. See pasted info below. I heard about it via an ASTC email.
    I wonder if any of you out there with Teen Science Cafés at science centers and museums (or anywhere, really) might be interested? Perhaps you can find a meteorologist or other geoscientists of some description who could link this activity to something they do or are interested in? It could be a great café.
    Let’s hear your ideas!

    Dear colleagues and friends:
    We wanted to let you know of a staff-training opportunity related to the upcoming first annual International Science Center and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD) on Thursday, November 10, 2016.

    Next Monday, September 12, please join us with Holli Riebeek Kohl of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center for a webinar about the 2016 Global Experiment.

    The experiment challenges science-center and science-museum guests around the world to observe clouds using the GLOBE Observer app during the first two weeks of November.

    These observations will be compared to NASA satellite data to create a global view of clouds from above and below. Clouds are critical to climate, and play a role in climate change. Understanding changes in clouds also helps us understand how the water cycle—the distribution of fresh water around the planet—is changing.

    The webinar will also introduce a few hands-on activities that may be used in your museum to support the global experiment.

    The webinar will be offered on Monday, September 12, at:

    9:00 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time (13.00 UTC/GMT)
    8:00 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time (Tuesday, 00.00 UTC/GMT)

    The webinar can only accept 50 users at a time. The webinar will be recorded and distributed if you are unable to attend either time.

    Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android:

    Or iPhone one-tap (US Toll):

    Or Telephone:
    Dial: +1 646 558 8656 (U.S. Toll)

    Meeting ID: 703 283 0987
    (Numbers outside the U.S. are available by clicking here.)

    If you have any questions about this webinar or the November 10 ISCSMD, please contact Walter Staveloz, ASTC’s director of international relations, at
