Using the Project EDDIE Ocean Biogeochemistry and Paleoclimate Module in The Earth's Climate System
Allison Jacobel, Middlebury College
The Ocean Biogeochemistry and Paleoclimate module guided students in an introductory climate science course through activities that enabled them to answer the question "How does ocean primary productivity influence global climate." Along the way they gained skills in plotting and interpreting time series, and examining the correlation of datasets using linear regressions.

EDDIE Modules: Earth and Ecosystems:Phenology Trends and Climate Change in Minnesota

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.

EDDIE Modules: Environmental Data:Climate Change

Using Wind and Ocean Ecosystems in Environmental Statistics
Alanna Lecher, Lynn University
This module eposes students to a variety of data, plots, and visualizations that they are not often exposed to and therein encourages them to develop their higher order thinking skills in the context of oceanography. Students also get excited about the prospect of manipulating satellite data.

Using the Project EDDIE Sustainability Metrics Module in Natural Resources Consumption & Sustainability
Natalie Hunt, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities
Given the inherent complexity of sustainability, it is often difficult to determine or compare how sustainable a process, a country, or a product can be. As a result, sustainability claims are often challenging to convey. This module gives students an opportunity to use an analytical framework with publicly available data to formulate questions, analyze data, and report metrics of sustainability.

Using the Project EDDIE Nutrient Monitoring in the Chesapeake Bay module in Foundations in Biology I - Biodiversity and Organismal Systems
Akinyele Oni, Morgan State University
The dwindling seafood population in the Chesapeake Bay is connected to the increasing level of pollution such as high levels of nutrient inflow.Efforts are now being geared towards the cleanup as well as the monitoring of the inflow to ensure adherence to standards.This module is developed to create awareness in the scholars' population of the need to monitor and control permissible levels of nutrients that are allowed into the waters without causing any harm.
