A Remote-Sensing Mission

by: Rose Hotchkiss and Daniel Dickerson

Sponsored by NASA and the JASON Education Foundation, the remote Sensing Earth Science Teacher Education Program (RSESTeP) trains teachers to use state-of-the art remote-sensing technology with the idea that participants bring back what they learn and incorporate it into Earth science lessons using technology. The author’s participation in the program created an opportunity for her fifth-grade students to learn about local wetlands using data and images from space. Students used authentic scientific methods to answer their own questions about the specific environment in which they live. This exciting, remote-sensing mission is described here.
