On May 19-20, 2005, the NASA Science Mission Directorate held its second Earth Science Education Community Meeting in Orlando, Florida.The purpose of this meeting was to present a draft of the NASA Earth science education roadmap for community review and commments. The roadmap will be a 10-year plan that guides the NASA Earth science education program and ensures that future generations of Earth explorers have the knowledge and ability required to understand and protect Earth and contribute to NASA’s Vision for Space Exploration.

Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) was represented by Dr. Darnell Johnson, Chair of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department and Dr. Barbara Johnson, a professor in the Education Department. The meeting was centered on working groups looking at specific focus areas in the roadmap, including elementary and secondary education, higher education, informal science education, and underrepresented/underserved audiences.
