With renewed attention to global environmental challenges, understanding how Earth’s systems work is essential to both thinking about those challenges and finding potential solutions. Teaching about human interactions with Earth systems requires that students apply relevant science concepts to these challenges. For example, students should understand the water cycle when exploring freshwater distribution, the atmospheric […]
Following the recommendation to incorporate the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) science and engineering practices in their classrooms, schools across the country are looking for ways to integrate scientific argumentation into their curriculum. Since 2012 the High-Adventure Science project in collaboration with National Geographic Education has offered free online modules for Earth and space science […]
There are over 100 standalone models available in our STEM Resource Finder, which you can assign to your students. Consider the following ways you might use them in your classroom. Project a model for the whole class to see. Explore data and phenomena. For instance: Look at the patterns of earthquakes and volcano locations in […]
In collaboration with the Educational Testing Service (ETS), we’re using an automated scoring engine to assess students’ written responses in real time and provide immediate feedback within two Earth science curriculum modules.
GEODE aims to transform geoscience teaching and learning using interactive, geodynamic models designed to explore how plate movements are responsible for most features on Earth’s surface.
We’re bringing the excitement of scientific discovery to students by letting them explore pressing unanswered questions in Earth, space, and environmental science using the same methods that practicing scientists use.
