Check out our new and improved curriculum, Eyes in the Sky: How Satellites Can Promote Social and Environmental Justice, just back from the editors. It’s updated and available for download today! This space-based curriculum, developed with CraftEd Curriculum, gives educators the tools to use satellite imagery and data to lead students in an interdisciplinary, inquiry-based project integrating science, English Language Arts, digital media and technology, and social and political science.
This cutting-edge curriculum uses the latest Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and teaching methodologies to prepare our children for a future where they’ll be employed in jobs that don’t exist today. Since its debut in Fall 2016, educators around the country have used this curriculum with success.
Here’s what one educator had to say after using Eyes in the Sky with her high school students:
“I used Eyes in the Sky in my high school Honors Astronomy class. It was a fantastic way to lead into my own lessons about orbital dynamics. My students found the lessons engaging, interesting, and informative. Some students even used satellite imagery to discover time lapse images of Syria, showing how satellite imagery can truly be used in a relevant and interdisciplinary way.”

We believe in providing the best possible tools for our community of learners. For that reason, we’ve updated the curriculum to bring the best pedagogy, educational standards, and satellite imagery to classrooms around the country and the globe. Specifically, this update incorporates the latest NGSS Cross Cutting Concepts and Science and Engineering Practices.
