Learn about our newest Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) and how to access and investigate imagery using the free Satellite Information and Familiarization Tool (SIFT). By participating in this session educators will become equipped to coach students in a spring 2019 virtual science fair (http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/education/goesr/vsf) where students will use satellite data to investigate weather and natural hazards. Prizes include gift cards and official satellite launch viewing invitations. Teachers coaching the winning teams will garner launch invites and travel support to present at the 2020 American Meteorological Centennial meeting in Boston! WSST teachers in attendance will also receive a beautiful 4-season poster of Wisconsin.
