Argos: Using Satellites to Learn About Animals
Principal Investigators: Lisa Gardiner
Funder: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), US Department of Commerce
These educational resources were developed at the UCAR Center for Science Education as an outreach effort of Argos, a system of instruments aboard satellites used to track tagged animals around the world and help understand other aspects of our planet.
This collection of classroom activities and the Follow Me! comic book tell the stories of animals that are often hard to observe — animals that live in hard-to-reach places, travel long distances, or live underwater. Based on research projects that track animals with satellites, these activities illustrate how technology can help us learn about the natural world.
Type of Collaboration: Tell Science Stories: Exhibits and Online Resources
