Explore the power of community/citizen science, Earth's magnetic field, space weather, and data collection with a series of lessons, videos, and webinars designed for middle and high school students, undergraduate students and the general public. 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.
