In-Person Field Trip with Planet

Educators, be sure to take our short 2022-2023 educator training before signing up for this event.

Only teachers, counselors, or adult staff members at a school can sign up for IGNITE events. If you are a student, please let the IGNITE Educator at your school know that you are interested in this event. If you don’t have IGNITE at your school, please email contactus@ignite-worldwide.org to get started!

Students will participate in a tour of the stunning satellite lab; see mission control; perform a technical activity (day in the life of satellite, extracting data from images); and hear from women across various different departments in the company about their journeys.

Planet has a constellation >250 Earth-imaging satellites that we use to take a photo of the entire planet, every day. These photos are used to track change around the world — for agriculture, deforestation, urban growth, and much more. Students will be able to experience how these satellites are built, operated, and how unique data is extracted from the resulting images.

  • All attendees will receive Planet stickers, pens, and notebooks!
  • No COVID protocols specified
Sold out!
