Individuals and classrooms are invited to join the GeoMag Data Challenge! Explore the power of citizen science, Earth's magnetic field, and data collection with us this fall with a series of lessons, videos, and webinars designed for middle and high school students. Complete the challenge to be entered in a raffle! Your data contributions will help scientists understand changes in Earth's magnetic field that will lead to improvements in navigation and help to protect our communication systems and electric grid from space weather.

We are kicking off this data blitz with a live webinar! Learn about Earth's magnetic field and why it's vital for life on Earth, ask questions directly to challenge facilitators, and meet the team. In this live event, we'll teach you to collect data on the intensity of Earth's magnetic field using only your phone and the CrowdMag app.
