Our Winter, 2010, issue of The Earth Scientist (TES) includes 6 articles dealing with various aspects of Earth Science. These include an article packed with information regarding meteor cratering. Then there’s an article describing the numerous Galileoscope Workshops being held across the USA. An article is included describing ISTEP, a terrific international collaboration between the teachers and students from New York and Singapore. We’ve included an inventive article, showing step by step how to create glaciers in your own classroom. There’s an article showing how you can create and use Screen-Capture Podcasts with your students. And last, but definitely not least, we’ve included an article which provides enlightening information about a type of cloud your students will find facinating: Pyro-Cumulonimbus Clouds.
