The CZOs have cooperated for the past two years with the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) to create hands-on learning exercises using CZO data for use in secondary education classrooms. The one-page, double-sided exercises were included in AGI's Earth Sciences Week packets and sent to 16,000 teachers nationwide. The exercises are attached to this news story (see below section on "Files").  Also see Harpold, A.A. and T.S. White (2013): AGI LiDAR Handout. AGI 2013 handout.

Additional exercises are available at the National Education and Outreach K-12 page.
