UNIVERSITY OF NORTHERN COLORADO

STEAM PD & WORKSHOP

In March 2018, our co-founder Monica Aiello headed to the beautiful campus of the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. There she visited Professor Donna Goodwin's arts education classes. Inspiring teacher candidates explored how the visual arts can enliven Earth science investigation with the Goldilocks Planet Project. Students learned to use art concepts to explore topics in hydrology and connections to society. They honed observational skills, sparked inquiry and dove into creative investigations through pastel art inspired by satellite images. The Goldilocks Planet Project is an Earth version for our NASA program, Art & the Cosmic Connection. Get the curriculum for FREE here.
