Camp 2001 Day to Day Activities

July 2001


Contents

1. Day I

1. Activities

Presentation of camp activities and schedule by staff. General presentation of the problem. Designation of groups. Prepare group slides and individual introduction slides.

2. Tools

3. Presentations

Present group name and each members introduction slide

4. Rubrics

Students become aware of the General problem and camp schedule. Students make a presentation as a group.

2. Day II

1. Activities

Become familiar with Word, IME, Power Point. Download images into directory, work with files, create power point slides.

2. Tools

3. Teaching Moment

Learn about watersheds and drinking water supply and quality

4. Presentations

Present a definition of a watershed and briefly describe the Hackensack River watershed using a satellite image.

5. Rubrics

Students become familiar with utility software and managing files. Must learn to reach consensus as a group on a definition of a watershed

3. Day III

1. Activities

Students create color composit images of the watershed using bands 5, 4 and 3. Students compose image of watershed with watershed boundary and create a Power Point Slide.

2. Tools

3. Teaching Moment

How Brightness values from reflections of the earth are converted to pixels and digital numbers.

4. Presentations

Students present three color composit images with different contrast settings and their histograms. Preset color composit image selected plus watershed boundary

5. Rubrics

Students become familiar with the principals of satellite images, pixels, histograms and color contrast.

4. Day IV

1. Activities

Students reclassify a satellite image of land use and isolate the industry class. They show industry as a 1 and everything else as zero. They provide the total area occupied by industry in the image.

2. Tools

3. Teaching Moment

Introduction to the concept of classes in remote sensing and how to create new classes. Introduction of color pallets

4. Presentations

Students show the industry class as 1 and everything else as zero. Students create a pallet to show images with only two classes.

5. Rubrics

Students learn about land use and how to obtain area measurements of classes from remote sensing images.

5. Day V

1. Activities

Students use a DEM of the watershed to calculate slope and reclassify slope top show slopes greater than 5

2. Tools

3. Teaching Moment

Students are introduced to the concept of slope and runoff

4. Presentations

Students show the raw DEM and then the DEM as a 3d Representation. They also show the reclassify slope image with a corresponding pallet.

5. Rubrics

Students learn the concept of slope and how it is calculated. They also learn how to use software tools to create 3D visualization of landscapes

6. Day VI

1. Activities

Using the industrial image and the slope image create a third image that shows industrial sites on slopes greater than 5

2. Tools

3. Teaching Moment

Students are shown image overlay operations using the wood grid models

4. Presentations

Students present the industry and slope image and explain the overly operation

5. Rubrics

Students work with rectangular arrays of numerical quantities (matrix math) and learn to solve overlay operations with satellite images.

7. Day VII

1. Activities

Students create the ''solution image" by merging industry, slope and water into one image using the reclass and overlay commands.

2. Tools

3. Teaching Moment

Students are introduced to the concept of texture and surface for creating fly-by's

4. Presentations

Show 3D representation of the ''solution image" and indicate area of interest for the fly-by

5. Rubrics

Students use three dimensional representation of images of the surface of the earth to visualize the runoff water pollution problem. They reflect on possible solutions to the problem of water pollution.

8. Day VIII

1. Activities

Students create fly-by animations showing problem areas for water pollution. While fly by's compile they work on putting together their final presentation.

2. Tools

3. Teaching Moment

Students are presented with different strategies for creating fly=by's

4. Presentations

Show the test runs of the fly-bys

5. Rubrics

Students experiment with 3D visualization techniques

9. Day IX

1. Activities

Students finish fly-by and final presentation. They create a final conclusion slide.

2. Tools

3. Teaching Moment

Students are coached on public speaking techniques

4. Presentations

Groups present their first draft of the final presentation. They receive feed back from camp staff

5. Rubrics

Students synthesize the problem and its solution into one single Power Point presentation.

10. Day X

1. Activities

Students do a final edit and dry run of the presentation. Final presentation and handing of camp certificates

2. Tools

3. Presentations

Final presentation to the public

4. Rubrics

Students experience public speaking.
