This project describes the importance of Near Earth Aerial Tracking as an educative tool, and how its use may broaden students' interest in their local environment. The goal of this project was to use Near Earth Aerial Tracking to encourage students and professionals to collect data regarding the vegetative health of plant life in their communities. In order to achieve this goal, we achieved three objectives; we analyzed already existing programs, optimized our equipment and program, and designed an integrated curriculum for students. Two kits were designed as a result of this project. These kits help encourage the reinforcement of mathematics, science, engineering and technology.
