Science On a Sphere

I work with other scientists, educators, graphic artists, and video producers to develop new educational presentations for NOAA's Science On a Sphere (SOS). Our content is distributed via open access to the entire SOS Users Network and incorporated into SOS programs at over 150 science centers around the world.
