Using Project EDDIE modules in MSC 160 Oceanography
Jacqui Degan, Cape Fear Community College
All students have at some point experienced a storm. The Bomb Cyclone module is a great series of activities to use during the Atmospheric Circulation section of an Introductory Oceanography course. It introduces students to working with large datasets and basic graphing skills in Excel, and exposes students to how messy real data can be.

Using the Project EDDIE Major Ions in Freshwater Systems module in Environmental Processes, Challenges, and Methods
Megan Kelly, Loyola University Chicago
This module introduces students to a common and important source of freshwater pollution that invites debate about how to address the problem. By examining publicly available data, students can discover what types of environments are likely to suffer from road salt pollution, compare environmental concentrations of chloride to concentrations of legal and biological concern, and either defend the use of sodium chloride for road deicing or propose another solution, based on their understanding of the data.

Using Project EDDIE modules in Global Challenges, Scientific Solutions: Climate Change
Pamela Freeman, The College of Saint Scholastica
We found this case study to have an outsized impact on our students. The students reported feeling more confident with data, spreadsheets, and analysis, and were surprised with what they could do. They were also surprised by the biological findings, some events were happening earlier and some were not affected by slightly warmer temperatures.

Using the Project EDDIE Green Infrastructure/Green Roofs module in Envsci101
Elizabeth Farrell, Nassau Community College
Excess runoff often times carries with it pollutants and contaminants, and has proven to damage water quality. In this module students will explore green roofs as a potential solution to the environmental impacts of increased precipitation brought on by climate change. The module is designed to help students learn how to work with data tin order to help develop and improve their analytical and critical thinking skills.

Using Project EDDIE modules in Biochemistry for Science Majors
Niangoran Koissi, Morgan State University
The largest and at one-time most productive estuary in the United States, the Chesapeake Bay is an integral part of our natural and national history.Home to more than 18 million people and 3,600 species of plants and animals, the Chesapeake Bay watershed stretches across six states and the District of Columbia, it never ceases to amaze with its rich history, vital economic importance, and astounding beauty. Nevertheless, these facts can only be preserved through monitoring the nutrients that are pouring into it.
