Destination Space:

Satellite Week, August 14-18, 2017 Project

Project Purpose

Destination Space: Satellite Week will cultivate a long-term interest in STEM by providing an engaging, hands-on remote sensing educational opportunity for high school students. Satellite remote sensing provides a vast range of uses to analyze and potentially mitigate local and global environmental issues and has an even larger potential to expand to a wider variety of applications in the near future. Students will get to learn about satellites and remote sensing in Asheville’s Museum of Science, in The Collider (a climate solutions center) and in NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information. Destination Space inspires and empowers students to develop into capable scientists and become the next generation of STEM leaders.
