In order to facilitate locating current classroom resources (K–16), the PDEC is collaborating with the Digital Library for Earth Systems Education (DLESE) to host an interface that searches the DLESE database for resources utilizing planetary data in student explorations. Still under construction. Currently, some resources specifically involving data can be found by selecting the "interactive" activity type in this search engine.
