Is it true that you can't study for this event?

actually, you can study certain aspects. at the new york state test last year, there was a page on basic knowledge of waves, satellites and such, so that is something one can study. another way to study is to just look at old tests; they often have similar questions and similar methods.

Okay then, that's good. I want to do it this year, so I want to be able to study too.

The people who say you can't study for this event are the ones that don't like the event. It is possible and completely necessary to study for it. I would suggest looking at the Remote Sensing Wiki, especially the 2nd link under 2010 links, which is to a Canadian tutorial that is a good starting place, and you will probably also want to look at certain sections of the NASA tutorial. The hard part to study is the human impact on Earth and the ecology stuff that is included with that. As long as you know the basics behind remote sensing you should be okay though.

The only event that I couldn't figure out a way to study for was Pentathlon- that being said, there's still some way to study for it.

I can't wait to see what this event is all about.
