Digital images and video materials from the Russian Segment of the International Space Station (ISS RS) obtained under space program Uragan are being successfully used in Russian high-schools and universities. They serve as perfect training aids for schoolchildren, students and teachers in the studies of physical, social, economic and political geography. The pictures provide beautiful visual imagery which, when combined with a map, is conducive to a more efficient perception of information.

Color pictures and video films from space help to learn about major Earth's spheres: lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere, as well as to learn about specifics of their interaction; they help to get acquainted with geography of continents and oceans. Materials from the ISS assist in studying landforms and Earth interior, the laws of atmospheric circulation and climate-forming factors, natural zones, water, soil and plant resources, as well as industry, power production, agriculture and transport. Pictures and video films from space allow studying the geography of the nations of the world and impact of human activities on the environment.

Developed within the framework of educational space experiment Great Start were detailed recommendations for teachers on how teach the pupils using Earth remote sensing data received from the ISS RS.

If you want schools in your region/district to use space pictures from the ISS RS in the educational process, please contact us through the "Cooperation" section.
