Tuesday, November 27, 2018 @ 2:00pm EST (7:00pm UTC): Acquire - Analyze - Apply (A3): Live from the Institute for Earth Observations in Palmyra Cove, New Jersey USA.
Please join us as we hear from Executive Director, John D. Moore and Director of Science, Technology, and Education, Peter Dorofy, both from the Institute for Earth Observations and members of the GLOBE Mission Earth collaborative. John and Peter will discuss what science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) , Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) , and Career Technical Education (CTE) have in common. The "ACQUIRE- ANALYZE- APPLY (A3) Project introduces teachers and students to important 21st century skillsets. As the role of Earth Observing Satellites, like ICESat-2, become more of a remote sensing tool that impacts our daily lives and decision making, GLOBE students, and beyond, can begin to experience these proficiencies. In addition to the students collecting their GLOBE protocol data as part of the Trees Around the GLOBE Campaign, other remote sensing techniques, such as drones and NASA AEROKAT kites, allow students and teachers to gather their own tree and land cover imagery and data. HoloGLOBE is an Augmented Reality tool that allows teachers and students to Acquire, Analyze, and Apply real time data satellite imagery and data in a unique and cutting-edge way. This data can then be compared to a collection of satellite data through various tools.
