The 7th grade is helping NASA improve their educational materials. We are part of a pilot program looking at global precipitation data from the GPM satellite. GPM is the Global Precipitation Measurement Mission.
NASA and JAXA, the Japanese Astronomical Exchange Administration, are working together to get global precipitation data from all over the world, along with 9 other satellites from other countries. We are testing the educational materials for this program and the 7th grade was building a model of the GPM satellite.
