Meet Paige and Pho - your guides through the ICESat-2 FunZone!
Join these two to learn more about the NASA ICESat-2 mission.
ICESat-2 uses green lasers, which are made up of bits of light called photons.
Hi, I'm Pho the Photon!
And I'm Paige the Penguin!
Make your own Ice Core!
Learn why scientists need to collect ice cores by creating your own using simple craft supplies.
Motion in the Ocean
This experiment demonstrates how fluids move depending on their densities. Participants see for themselves
what happens when you pour saltwater on top of freshwater.

What is photon counting?
Pretending that you are the ICESat-2 satellite, learn about photon counting and spacecraft engineering by using green bouncy balls.
How thick is the ice covering Greenland?
Investigate this question, key to the ICESat-2 mission, with a coloring activity, then learn more about Earth’s different forms of freshwater in EO for Kids.
