During this presentation, participants will learn about the world’s most dangerous animal — the mosquito! We will begin by learning about how NASA’s Earth-observing satellites are helping us predict, monitor, and respond to mosquito-transmitted disease. Then we will focus on a free NASA-sponsored app called “GLOBE Observer” and teach participants how to use the “Mosquito Habitat Mapper” tool.
