Do you know what satellites are and how they work? How do they take those images, and what are they used for?
This workshop will introduce STEM youth to Earth observation and remote sensing and give them insight into how we use imagery sent to Earth daily by satellites in space.
Scientists, government, corporate companies, and mines all have a mission in common, loving Earth from space.
Satellites orbit around Earth to help us monitor change and plan for disasters. We use satellite images for future planning, such as weather forecasts, erosion, flood damage, farming, maps, etc. In this workshop, STEM youth will get to see satellite images through FarEarth Live Observer, visit a real-life antenna, and have the opportunity for a Q&A session with subject matter experts working in the industry.
