The challenge—the specific theme to tackle will be revealed on Feb. 15—is a campus-wide student competition. The winners will receive $1,000.
Undergrad and grad students are invited to demonstrations and workshops to learn about Planet Labs and their near-daily stream of Earth observation satellite data. See calendar listing.
