Project in progress
What is your wish for this project?
In our project we will focus on the satellites that the European Space Agency (ESA) is using in order to monitor air quality, vegetation and water pollution. We will investigate how this technology was used during the horrific environmental disaster that occurred back in 2017 next to our island, when an oil spill formed after an accident.
How are you going to do it?
Getting engaged: We will investigate what is a satellite, which materials are used in order to build one and why are the necessary for Earth sciences. Community mapping: We will interview people in our island and ask them how the felt when they saw the oil spill and how it affected their lives and we will write an article expressing their opinion. We will contact the environmental organization of Salamina (PERIVOS) in order to give us a talk about the environmental impact of the oil spill. ...read more
