Celebrate International Women in Science Day with RightsTech Women and partners, 11 February 2022
Join RightsTech Women, NASA biospheric researcher, Liza Goldberg, and our team of technical coaches for an online training for girls and women aged 14 and older on 11 February 2022 from 17:30-18:30 (CET). This event will take place online, via Zoom.
To register: https://women-in-science-day.eventbrite.com
How is our planet changing? The ‘Cloud to Classroom’ training is an initiative of Liza Goldberg with Google, NASA and National Geographic. Girls and women aged 14 and older will learn how to apply pictures of Earth taken from space in understanding climate change in your local area and around the world. You will get an overview of using satellite imagery analysis and its many practical uses in today’s jobs.
Participants will learn:
- basic principles of remote sensing;
- introduction to using the Google Earth Engine platform, a satellite processing platform, to write your own code, and to better visualize and understand climate trends such as sea level rise, temperature change, and extreme events;
- how to explore appropriate satellite datasets to represent a trend.
This free event is offered to participants from our 11 December 2021 training, as well as new learners. Beginners who are girls or women aged 14+ are welcome; no prior programming experience is needed!
The main contents of the workshop will be in English (with assistance in French available).
You need a laptop you can use at home and a stable Internet connection.
We hope to see you on the 11th of February! Meanwhile, take care and stay healthy.
