The Special Interest Group Education and Training is a network which initiates and organises joint projects under the umbrella of EARSeL. The aim is to bring the methods and results of remote sensing into the classroom. Participation of teachers from all school levels in these activities is particularly welcomed.
The project Science Education through Earth Observation for High Schools (SEOS) has been the first initiative for using remote sensing in science education curricula in high schools. Funded in 2007-2009 under the 6th Framework Programme of the European Commission (EC), eleven EARSeL partners from several European countries in cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA) and teachers from European high schools created e-learning tutorials for science students in high schools across Europe.
