Transporting sediment off of the continental shelf part of Teach the Earth:Teaching Activities
In this activity students examine a map of geopotential anomaly to determine ocean current patterns. They then examine particle beam attenuation data to identify patterns in the locations of intermediate nepheloid ...

Introduction to circuits and Arduino coding part of Teach the Earth:Teaching Activities
This activity guides students through making a simple circuit and writing a simple Arduino sketch (code) to make some LEDs blink. It precedes a lab where students build a temperature sensor, and could be used prior ...

Oceanographic Instrumentation, Measuring Temperature part of Teach the Earth:Teaching Activities
Students open the "black box" of instrumentation by building a temperature sensor, modifying a computer program and collecting data to make a graph of the thermocline. Students will build simple ...

Quantifying transport of sediment off of continental shelves part of Teach the Earth:Teaching Activities
This activity requires students to manipulate oceanographic data to derive new variables, make plots, interpret plots and make back-of-the-envelope calculations to weigh the importance of eddies in shelf edge ...

Sea level change part of Oceanography:Activities
Students calculate sea level change due to melting ice caps, thermal expansion and changes in ridge spreading rates.

Computers and instrumentation, opening the black box part of Earth Educators Rendezvous:Rendezvous 2019:Program:Teaching Demonstrations:Friday
This activity introduces students to electrical circuits, building a temperature sensor, calibrating the sensor, altering a computer code and taking some data with the sensor. Although this sounds complicated the ...
