Digital Earth Academy: Stonehenge to Skyscrapers

Program Description

No plane ticket? No problem. Virtually travel the world and gaze down on great structures from the past and present. From Stonehenge to the Burj Khalifa, see how landscapes have been transformed by their human inhabitants and how they appear today. What’s easy to spot? What’s hard to see? Can you really see the Great Wall of China from space? Museum experts will be your guides to human engineering marvels.   

Digital Earth Academy is a new edition of the acclaimed Digital Earth series produced especially for students. Each month, we examine a different aspect of our dynamic planet: landscapes and landforms, human impacts and achievements, and much more. With stunning visualizations, interactive polls, and real-time Q&A, students will make observations, comparisons and connections and gain a new perspective of the Earth.
