Phenology Plot Project part of ACM Pedagogic Resources:ACM/FaCE:Projects:Integrating Sustainability into the Undergraduate Curriculum:Activities
Students pick one place in the Carleton Arboretum to spend at least 20 minutes observing the biodiversity in that one place at least six times during the term. Students must record observations visually and with the written word and share their final projects with the class.
How Effective is a Remediation System at a Regional Landfill? part of Cutting Edge:Geochemistry:Activities
In this activity, students begin exploring the effectiveness of a remediation system installed at a closed landfill system. Students learn the importance of redox chemistry in a real-world context and build field ...
Rocket Lab part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is lab based competition. The students engineer a 2-litter rocket to have the maximum hang time. After the initial launch, the students are given an opportunity to re-engineer to produce a better time. The activity finishes with a lab write-up.
What makes things move? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an inquiry approach to teaching what force is. Students will learn what push, pull, gravity, and friction are.
How do Volcanoes form? How do they impact our lives? part of Cutting Edge:Geodesy:Activities
Navajo Indian Reservation has many volcanoes and the aim of this class activity is to provide hands-on information to students on how these volcanoes form and how they effect the plant and animal life. We perform ...
