SEEC Space Exploration Educators Conference
This conference at Space Center Houston is for grades kindergarten to 12th – and not just for science teachers! strives to use space to teach across the curriculum. The activities presented can be used for science, language arts, mathematics, history, and more. Attend sessions hosted by the actual scientists and engineers working on exciting endeavors like the International Space Station and explorations of Mars and the planets beyond.
Remote Sensing Math
Complete study for remote sensing and mathematical models. Each lesson in this guide is a supplement for teaching mathematical topics. The problems can be used to enhance understanding of the mathematical concept or as an assessment of student mastery.
