During Sally Ride EarthKAM missions (periods when the Sally Ride EarthKAM camera is operational), middle school students worldwide request images of specific locations on Earth. The entire collection of Sally Ride EarthKAM images is available in a searchable Sally Ride EarthKAM image archive. This image collection and accompanying activities are extraordinary resources to engage students in Earth and space science, geography, social studies, mathematics, communications, and art.
