The Pipeline for Remote Sensing Education and Application (PRSEA) programs at Pacific Science Center, developed for a five year project funded through a NASA grant, increase awareness, knowledge and understanding of remote sensing technologies and associated disciplines through a combination of activities that build a “pipeline” to STEM and remote sensing careers, for a continuum of audiences – 3rd grade through adulthood. The programs include serving children in grades 3-5 in a remote sensing-based, out-of-school-time summer outreach program; involving teens from groups underrepresented in STEM fields in a four-year career ladder program; engaging youth in grades 6-8 in remote sensing-themed summer intensive programs; and helping thousands of visitors of all ages encounter remote sensing through a Discovery Cart on Pacific Science Center’s exhibit floor.
