Description:

The Adventure of Echo the Bat is an interactive web site that introduces students to remote sensing and biodiversity from a constructivist approach. It includes a teacher's guide with classroom activities that provide a structure to integrate the adventure into the classroom. The activities introduce basic concepts of remote sensing, including visible light and the electromagnetic spectrum. After students complete the adventure, the hands-on activities provided in the teacher's guide serve to reinforce these concepts. Topics include: interpreting satellite images; electromagnetic waves; the concept of wavelength; color and light; the electromagnetic spectrum; satellites; and habitats and biodiversity.
