Radar Mapping: What's in the Box?

In this activity, learners mimic remote sensing. Learners use a stick to measure the distance to a "planet surface" they cannot see, and create their own map of the landscape. Use this activity to discuss how scientists use remote sensing to explore the surface of Venus.
