Broaden Your Impact
This webinar series will focus on sharing ideas and resources on the development of broader impact statements. We will highlight different approaches to and examples of effective and transferable activities.
Taking Data to Heart
When you show students how to use real-time data, you might be surprised to find out that they continue using the data long after the lesson is over. In this story, Leisl Hotaling shares with us an unexpected outcome she encountered while teaching students about Air Pollution.
Welcome to the NSTA COSEE short course home page. Here you will find information about the activities and resources we discussed in the workshop. We are interested in your feedback. Please post a comment and let us know what you used, how you used it, and who you used the materials with. We hope to […]
Activity: Jellies as Drifters
Jellies are drifters, meaning that their movement is largely at the mercy of the tides and currents in the water. Students can analyze real-time currents to see where jellyfish might travel.
Activity: Are You an Ocean Critter?
Many marine critters choose their habitat based on the temperature of the ocean. Students make the same choices when they decide whether to swim in the ocean. They can use sea surface temperature maps from satellites to determine where in the ocean they would swim today.
Activity: WhaleNet Marine Animal Tracking
In this activity, students use real-time data from WhaleNet to track the movements of marine animals.
