CIMSS iPad Library
The CIMSS iPad Library loans iPads to science teachers for an entire school year. This unique technology lending library from the UW-Madison Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) engages teachers and students in data acquisition and regional climate studies. The first units were distributed at a 2012 teacher workshop where participants learned about several climate-related apps, including SatCam, an application for iOS devices where users collect observations coordinated with a satellite overpass. The CIMSS iPad Library is coordinated by the Schwerdtfeger Library at the UW Space Science and Engineering Center.
