Learn more about Earth observation through new STEM teaching module

Climate change, sustainability, ecology,… These are all extremely important topics. But how can we make our society more sustainable to keep our planet a healthy and livable environment? To take the right actions, we first need to know the Earth's status. Through a brand new STEM teaching module (available in Dutch), students can easily identify the use and importance of remote sensing to monitor our Earth and create a more sustainable environment for everyone.
