Jabot chosen by NASA to be part of international education team

Dr. Michael Jabot

Michael Jabot, professor of Science Education, has been chosen by NASA to be part of an international education team. This team will partner with NASA and its educational outreach mission to help link NASA Earth Science missions with classrooms around the world.

Members of the team, representing eight countries, will have particular focus on how data from NASA Earth Science missions can be used to inform scientists worldwide in analyzing shifts in weather and climate to help advance our understanding of Earth's water and energy cycle, improve forecasting of extreme events that cause natural hazards and disasters, and extend current capabilities in using accurate and timely information of precipitation to directly benefit society.

Dr. Jabot joined the Fredonia faculty in 2001. He has been the recipient of the William T. and Charlotte N. Hagan Young Scholar/Artist Award and the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activities. In 2014, Dr. Jabot was recognized by the Science Teachers Association of New York State with their Excellence in College Science Teaching award.

Any teachers interested in being part of the project should contact Dr. Jabot at 673-3639 or by email at michael.jabot@fredonia.edu.
