We go places, but what do we do with the billions of snippets of information we absorb? How do we process the information so that it means something to us when we can no longer be there? As a geographer, my objective was to be able to observe, participate and categorize the billions of pieces of visual information

Students will prepare a case study illustrating the impact
The Toolik Field Station is located in the northern foothills of the Brooks Range in northern Alaska on the southeast shore of Toolik Lake (68°38’N, 149°36’W, elevation 720 m, 254 km north of the Arctic Circle). This location affords access to three major physiographic provinces of Alaska: the Brooks Range, the Arctic Foothills and the Arctic Coastal Plain. Toolik Field
The mission of Spaceward Bound is to train the next generation of space explorers by having students and teachers participate in the exploration of scientifically interesting but remote and extreme environments on Earth as analogs for human exploration of the Moon and Mars.
Spaceward Bound supports the second major NASA education goal to attract and retain students in STEM disciplines
A great resource that includes content and lessons for all grades. You can sign up to receive seeds that have either been in space or on Devon Island plus seeds that have not been exposed to harsh conditions. Students will be able to participate in a blind study to see if they can determine which seeds are the harsh environment
