The Adventure of Echo the Bat

This interactive adventure uses a Landsat mosaic of Arizona as the interface. Students need to interpret satellite imagery to receive clues to Echo the Bat's location. As students find Echo, additional content about remote sensing and biodiversity is introduced.

Coma Clusters

Students begin this lesson by creating a galaxy classification system for a collection of Hubble Space Telescope images. Following an explanation of galaxy morphological types, students then use additional images to identify and count the galaxy types.

Neato-Magneto Planets

This is an activity about magnetic fields.

Rover Races

Learners will simulate the challenges in communications that engineers face when operating a Mars rover from Earth.

How Do Satellites Send Images and How Do We Use Them?

The activities contained in this lesson are designed to introduce students to the basic characteristics of satellite images and their scientific importance.

Earth Exploration Toolbook: Is Greenland Melting?

Users explore data, using My World GIS, that characterize the dynamic Greenland Ice Sheet. By examining photographs, map views, and tabular data, users gain an understanding of how and why scientists are monitoring the ice sheet and what they are finding.

Making a Sundial

Students will gain an understanding of the daily movement of the sun across the sky by conducting a set of simple, quantitative observations using a sundial they have constructed.

Auroral Battery Electrical Circuit

This is a lesson about the mathematics of auroras. Learners will be exposed to the mathematical formulas that are used to estimate how much magnetic energy is available in the magnetic tail region of Earth.

Girls Go to Mars: A Tale of Two Planets

This series of investigative activities for Cadette Girl Scouts begins with an overview of our inner solar system, emphasizes the planetary histories of Mars, Earth and Venus, then concludes with evidence for the greenhouse effect on Earth.

GLOBE: Hydrosphere Protocol eTraining

The hydrosphere (water, ice, and vapor) is the focus of this GLOBE eTraining module. Protocols for investigating many characteristics of water such as temperature, transparency, electrical conductivity, pH, dissolved oxygen, salinity, nitrates, and identifying mosquito larvae are explained.
