Biographical Information

A former organic marine geochemist, physics teacher Crandall Dimock uses "remote sensing" - the use of satellite images to monitor the earth's natural processes - to ignite his students' interest in science at South Kensington High School in Wakefield. Using the school's Internet lab, Mr. Dimock's students learn how "remote sensing" helps predict weather and monitor atmospheric ozone depletion and global warning. This high-tech, hands-on approach challenges both his regular and disadvantaged students to solve problems on their own and plays an integral role in the Summer Satellite Camp Mr. Dimock created for elementary students. A master teacher, Mr. Dimock has conducted extensive research and published manuals on using "remote sensing" in K-12 science teaching.
