ERE staff members Mark Storrings and Paul Szemkow coordinated ERE Departmental efforts to prepare our New York State Fair booth and associated activities for this August 24-25 2013. They considered bringing a scaled river flume so visitors could learn about hydrology and hydraulics but they decided it was time to reach for the skies and expose visitors to remote sensing and image processing with kid-friendly activities related to stereovision and pixilzation. Head on out to the NYS Fair – say hello to your ESF friends!
