Haste, Turtle
Science Scope, v31 n9 p40-45 Jul 2008
NASA is involved in a project involving the International Space Station (ISS) and an Earth-focused camera called EarthKam, where schools, and ultimately students, are allowed to remotely program the EarthKAM to take images. Here the author describes how EarthKam was used to help middle school students learn about biomes and develop their understanding of the interrelationship of geographical location to climate, weather, and associated experiences. (Contains 2 figures and 6 resources.)
