Kathleen O'Connor

Welcome to the University Prep Science and Math ICCARS Page. My name is Kathleen O'Connor I am a sixth, seventh, and eighth grade science teacher at UPSM. I work with some wonderful middle school students! This year we are beginning to study the Earth's changing climate by using remote sensing. Our remote sensing devices, called Aerokats, are flown from 3 meter kites  at 30.5 meters in altitude.

Our focus this year has been to form our kite teams and learn how to safely fly these large kites. In year two we will be adding the remote sensing devices and will begin to study how climate is changing habitats in the Great Lakes Region.

Here are some pictures of our kite teams:
