Wednesday, October 14th is Earth Observation Day (EOD) 2015.  EOD is a STEM educational outreach event of AmericaView and our partners. Earth Observation Day’s goal is to engage students and teachers in remote sensing as an exciting and powerful educational tool.

Earth Observation Day is just one component of this year’s Earth Science Week, being held from October 11-17 and celebrates the theme “Visualizing Earth Systems.” [MORE]

One of the unique features of Earth Observation Day is that AmericaView scientists, all of whom are experts in remote sensing and related geospatial technologies, are available to support teachers in their respective states.

AmericaView scientists are committed to helping their state’s K-12 teachers as they expand their horizons and begin to integrate remote sensing as a fun, informative, and engaging teaching tool in their classrooms [MORE].

For one example, here is a fun and simple lession geared for all ages using Landsat imagery ….the Landsat Memory Game.
