ESIP Education Summer Workshop June 14
From Federation of Earth Science Information Partners
Attendees: LuAnn Dahlman, Margaret Mooney, Dan Zalles, Preston Lewis, Shelley Olds
Review Updated Activities Dan – Sensors
- Try to stay away from prescriptive steps
- Add a photograph of a sensor is attached as a drone/ask for an explanation of how they attached the sensor to the drone
- Preston – Using drones to take measurements to back up what a satellite can see
- Preston will help them identify NASA data
- Sensors can help them compare directly with NASA data and add to the GLOBE work
- Will not overlap too much with the talk earlier in the morning
- May be worth deleting the protocols on the right hand side. It may be a bit overwhelming in text.
- Good for people who already know about GLOBE protocol
- Should we ask this question to attendees beforehand?
- Shelley – Study an object from all sides
- Some math involved in order to get the 360 view
- Where is the science/research component to this? Is there enough?
- Let’s connect to STEAM – Arts!
- Clarify the 70% overlap
- Margaret – Doesn’t expect to have an activity as such, but instead something that people can try out in the afternoon if they want
- Sent all attendees and email to ask them to download SATCAM
- Expect to have something similar to Dan’s where they could take her presentation and try it out in the afternoon
- Should the activities be “handout-able vs talk-able” – what is the best way to go about this? Need a consistent setup.
- Before You Fly and Pre-Flight Checklist – nobody has signed up for it yet.
- Let’s leave it open for a little longer
- Preston is the backup for the Before You Fly app and Margaret for the Pre-Flight Checklist
- The break that we have in our schedule is at 10 and the ESIP wide break is at 10:30
- Action: LuAnn to look into fixing the scheduling
- 10:30-11:30 we have our 6 talks.
- Makes more sense to cut them into 2 sets
- sensor package by Shelley’s friend is an option
- Shelley has pulled together a list of sensor options
- The cigar option is lightweight but doesn’t have a lot of precision
- USB option 0.8 oz
- Do we want to buy a variety and try them out?
- Have about $100 for testing products
- Action Item: LuAnn to take a look at the options for sensors
