Our World: ICESat-2 Measures Ice Sheets

1,331 views 8 months ago
Why is NASA interested in Earth's ice? The creation of ICESat-2 is allowing NASA's scientists to make accurate maps of polar ice sheets. These maps help them make informed predictions about weather patterns, climate change, and the effects of changing ice structures. The maps are so accurate they can measure to within 3 centimeters of an ice sheet's actual thickness from a huge distance!

Our World (K-5) Play

Elementary students (grades K-5) learn more about Our World through the power of video segments. Through NASAs lens, the segments compare the natural world with the designed world, illustrating the ways to make the most of this world while propelling us into new worlds. This program is designed to supplement existing elementary learning objectives not only in STEM, but also in reading, writing, and visual and performing arts.

Real World (6-8) Play

Middle school students (grades 6-8) explore mathematics in action through Real World. These video segments connect classroom mathematics to 21st-century careers and innovations. Learning experiences are aligned with middle school mathematics standards of learning, and are designed for students to develop an appreciation for mathematics through real-world problem solving.
