In this learning activity, students create a 3D model of part of their local landscape, then make a series of observations from different directions. Using the bird's eye view, they translate the 3D model into a 2D map with a scale and key, and explore concepts related to remote sensing, including scale, resolution, and perspective. This is one of three Odyssey of the Eyes activities, part of the ... Full description.

This learning activity familiarizes students with the concept of modeling as it is related to remote sensing and to the process of digitizing images. Students create a digitized image of a map that they have created, and through this activity understand the importance of ground verification of remotely-sensed images. The maps and models that are created in Odyssey of the Eyes: Beginner Level are needed ... Full description.

Students will "digitize" photographs of human faces using various grid sizes and shades of gray. Through this activity, they gain an understanding of image resolution and how much information is needed to answer various questions.This introductory activity introduces skills that are used to recognize and interpret remotely sensed images, such as aerial photos and satellite images. To complete the ... Full description.

In this introductory activity, students learn about perspective, range and resolution and explain how the optimal viewing zone varies with what it is they want to know. Students view a large object such as a poster, store front, or even a brick wall from various distances and observe the difference in the information they can get from each perspective. Supplies required include a large sign or poster, ... Full description.

This activity is about planetary rovers. By designing the FIDO (Field Integrated Design and Operations) & Athena Long-Range Rover, learners will be able to identify instrumentation aboard the rover and then create and explain the instrumentation on their own rover using a supply of different foods. This is activity 9 of 25 from "Mars Activities." Full description.

This is an activity about spacecraft that have landed on Mars. Learners will become familiar with the vehicles of two Mars missions: Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Pathfinder and the rover Sojourner (note: the activity could be easily adapted to be based on more current Mars missions and spacecraft). They will design and build a vehicle with different foods by using diagrams naming the type of equipment ... Full description.
