Outreach

Since 1972, Landsat satellites have orbited Earth, sending back millions of images of our changing planet. Have fun at home learning more about the Landsat mission and our home planet with hands-on activities, interactives, and animations. Landsat Outreach offers a wide range of resources, including Landsat images, animations, K-14 classroom exercises, data tutorials, fact sheets, and more.

We encourage you to contact us with your questions and feedback and to share your ideas about using Landsat for learning and teaching.

Camp Landsat

Join us for nine weeks of summer camp fun. This virtual camp explores a new theme each week about how Landsat satellites help manage, protect, and preserve some of your favorite places on Earth. Your virtual camp counselors have curated an exciting collection of videos, interactives, and downloadable activities you can do at home or with friends of all ages.

Explore hands-on games, activities, and stories that spark curiosity about how Landsat studies Earth. This collection includes printable materials, online interactives, and StoryMaps exploring the various benefits of the Landsat program.

This collection of printable materials includes posters and board games to enjoy with friends or family, rulers, bookmarks, and more — all exploring how over 50 years of Landsat data has helped benefit society.

STELLA is a portable scientific instrument developed to support education and outreach and to promote engagement, inquiry, and discovery. Through the assembly and operation of a STELLA device, learners and citizen scientists of all ages can gain hands-on experience about remote sensing technology, principles, and applications.

Here you can find Landsat images and resources to help you teach about our changing Earth, the electromagnetic spectrum, the science and technology behind satellite data, and much more. Landsat supports a fundamentally spatial approach to learning and thinking about the world.
