The BIS, through its Education and Outreach Committee, works with partners to develop our own resources, as well as being able to sign-post you to fantastic activities from others, and inform you of inspiring places to visit.

ABOUT THE RESOURCE:
Developed by a member of the BIS Education and Outreach Committee in collaboration with Camilla Evans, the STEM Lead Communicator at Wishford School, this resource takes you through the space technology, right above our heads, and how it informs us of our planet’s activity every day.
Learn more about the fleet and what it records, and consider how this information informs us about our world’s climate.
