Empowering Communities & Classrooms On the Value of Remote Sensing
Abstract: Too few people realize all the ways remote sensing touches their lives and expands new possibilities in Geo-sciences. Touching the hearts and minds of the public can be achieved through an innovative collaboration that empowers audiences to think critically about how remote sensing has reshaped how we see and study our world. In this 30-minute presentation, an Emmy-winning documentary producer/geologist, reveals how to reach millions with multi-media and engage our next generation of remote sensing scientists.
Bio: Director of Production for the Emmy-winning Into the Outdoors Television network, Dan combines the odd mix of a geologist, science filmmaker and educational media developer in designing programs that empower students to think critically about their impact on Planet Earth. With 6 Emmys and hundreds of educational productions to his credit, his productions have been used in classroom curriculum nationally while his environmental documentaries have been broadcast on PBS in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.
