The Know Your Earth Quiz Collection 2014
The current phase of the Know Your Earth Project aligns to the larger NASA Earth Right Now Campaign through the creation of NASA Earth science quizzes. The quizzes, to be released throughout 2014, will focus on current NASA Earth science research topics and will be centered on an Earth science theme. The results of each of the quizzes will be able to be shared on your social media pages.
The Earth Right Now campaign is a largescale, NASA-wide campaign that, at its focal point, are the five NASA Earth science missions to be launched in 2014. The quizzes will highlight these missions during their respective launch and will highlight many NASA Earth science airborne and field campaigns.
We hope you enjoy learning more about NASA Earth Science and all the vital data and information that can be used to better understand our planet.
