Field Trip to EROS

Field Trip to EROS
Originally uploaded by Chez VH
While in the Sioux Falls area, we took a tour of the U.S. Geological Survey's "Earth Resources Observation and Science" Center.

Here is an explanation of what EROS is.

This was a fascinating place and we particularly enjoyed the enormous globe (pictured here), the satellite model (Frank says: "It looks like a camera." - smart guy) and the interesting maps. Frank was a bit distracting during the tour so I missed a few parts here and there.

The tour guide sent us home with a generous selection of teacher's resources and photo cards for the kids.
