Exploration and application of natural and infrared color images in middle school
Author(s): Steven K. Croft; Stephen M. Pompea; Steven McGee

Paper Abstract

A new classroom-tested software package provides an innovative curriculum for teaching elementary concepts in spectrum and color. Students explore the construction of natural and infrared color composites of Earth scenes to determine the unique spectral characteristics of terrestrial plants and apply this knowledge to a search for life on Mars.
