Allen Institute Free lesson plans that help students conduct real scientific experiments right in their web browsers. Through our research data portals, we’ve shared over 8 petabytes of data – around 1.7 million DVDs’ worth – of data that you and your students can explore. More advanced students can move from these guided experiments to independent research projects using our freely available data. As many colleges and universities are moving to online coursework as a precaution against COVID-19, we are happy to offer additional support by email to help you integrate our fully online resources into your classes.Full text of message from Allen Institute

SESYNC Intro to Socio-Environmental Series (3 part video)What are socio-environmental systems, what is synthesis, and how does one conduct synthesis research? In this three-part video series, we address those questions and provide examples that highlight the complexity and rewards of studying the relationships and dynamics between social and environmental systems. The video series also helps to clarify the importance and the process of forming diverse interdisciplinary teams, and provides an overview of some analytical tools used to conduct synthesis research.https://www.sesync.org/for-you/educator/teaching-resources/introduction-to-socio-environmental-synthesis-series

SESYNC Data and Methods - Short video clipsSocio-Environmental Synthesis draws on a diverse array of data and methods in order to begin solving complex environmental problems. Data from across natural and social sciences can be difficult to integrate, but we hope these segments help demystify the process.https://www.sesync.org/data-methods
