Students Invited to Present Inquiry-based Research Projects at the SATELLITES Conference in Perrysburg, Ohio


The SATELLITES Conference will be held at Penta Career Center in Perrysburg, Ohio, USA, on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 from 4 pm to 8 pm.

Area students in grades K-12 along with university students will present projects that were developed using their own inquiry-based research using geospatial technologies. Student projects will be evaluated for scientific quality and awards will be presented to the highest scoring teams in elementary, middle and high school and the university level.

Please register your students for the conference by: Tuesday April 1, 2015.  Each team should provide the following:

  1. Title of the poster. 

  2. Names of all students on the poster (maximum of 3 students per project)

Students will be broken into grade levels: elementary, middle, high school and college for judging. All students are encouraged to present their posters at the conference.

Guidelines for SATELLITES Inquiry-based Research Project

  1. The students' project must use at least one data sources. It could be data they collected or it could be data pulled from a data source such as the GLOBE website http://www.globe.gov , satellite imagery including Landsat, NASA NEO http://neo.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/Search.html, even Google Earth. 

  2. Each project must use geospatial technology in some way. Some examples include:

    1. Remote sensing –satellite image (from Google Earth, Landsat, or NEO) or aerial photograph.

    2. GPS coordinates

    3. GIS – spatial analysis or map of observation locations.

  3. Each project should be associated with climate change, alternative energy or water quality in some way. 

  4. Project teams will consist of between 1 and 3 students working on one project.    

  5. Don't forget the students' research journal.

GLOBE students in Ohio and surrounding areas are encouraged to participate.
