Reflection and Absorption of Light part of Examples
Students use a microcomputer connected to a light sensor and temperature probe to explore the reflection and absorption of light.
Comparing Sunscreens part of Examples
Students use a microcomputer connected to an ultra-violet sensor to compare the relative blocking power of different SPF sunscreens for the UVB region of the solar spectrum.
Where is North? part of Examples
Students use a microcomputer connected to a magnetic field sensor to measure the magnitude and direction of their local Earth's magnetic field .
Annotating Change in Satellite Images part of Examples
During this exercise, students compare a series of satellite images taken 3-4 years apart to investigate the effects of human land use and annotate the images using ImageJ software.
Bioinformatics part of Examples
This exercise contains two interrelated modules that introduce students to modern biological techniques in the area of Bioinformatics, which is the application of computer technology to the management of biological information. The need for Bioinformatics has arisen from the recent explosion of publicly available genomic information, such as that resulting from the Human Genome Project.
Seismicity and Relative Risk part of Examples
This activity introduces students to using real-time data about earthquakes to make decisions.
Estimating Primary Production in the Oceans from Satellite Data part of Examples
Environmental impacts of oil production in Alaska part of Examples
An activity designed to enable the students to access the impact of oil-development on environment in Alaska. Students will draw conclusion based on various data and reading various views.
Analysis of simple harmonic oscillator in a single video clip part of Examples
One video clip, with embedded graphs, can be used to help students understand the mathematical relationships that describe simple harmonic motion.
Measuring the coefficient of friction of a skater on ice part of Examples
Students use video analysis of ice skaters gliding across the ice to determine the coefficient of friction between the skates and the ice. Materials include instructions and six videos that can be used for analysis.
