'Earth from Space' a Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition

Through Saturday, January 12, 2019
Center for Creative Education

The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, in partnership with the U.S. Geological Survey, is providing the popular exhibition “Earth from Space” to more than 700 schools, universities, libraries, community centers and other venues. Center for Creative Education (CCE) is proud to be a participating venue.

The 20-poster set features beautifully detailed satellite images of the planet—from the swirling arms of a massive hurricane and the grid-like pattern of Kansas farmland to the triangular shadows cast by the Great Pyramids and the sinuous channels entering the Arctic Ocean. “Earth from Space” illustrates how satellite imagery is gathered and used to expand mankind’s understanding of life on Earth. It also explores the remote-sensing technology used to gather the images and describes the individual satellites whose images are on display.

The images provide clues about the nature of our planet and offer teachers opportunities to engage students in a broad array of science topics, including geography, environmental studies, ecology, oceanography and meteorology.
