Students become aware of the changes in visibility and sky color due to particles suspended in the air, called aerosols. They observe, document and classify changes in visibility and sky color over several days and understand the relationship... (View More)

This tutorial on cloud types was designed for participants in the S'COOL project (Student Cloud Observations On-Line). S'COOL engages students in making and reporting ground truth observations of clouds then comparing those observations with data... (View More)

In this demonstration, students learn that heat makes air expand and rise, and learn how pressure systems are formed by observing the creation of a convection current. A large rectangular pan, a salad dressing bottle, a small latex balloon and water... (View More)

Students observe the process of cloud formation in this demonstration activity using a rectangular pan, small glass, large rectangular pencil eraser, water and a few grains of salt. In a closed system, water vapor floats inside the glass until it... (View More)

Students see that natural hazards present personal and societal challenges by playing a board game that simulates hurricane landfall. Students decide to prepare for, evacuate, do nothing, or stay in their house, and are rewarded for making the right... (View More)

This video describes how to select a soil infiltration study site, and demonstrates procedures used when taking soil infiltration in the field. Instructions for fabricating a necessary piece of field equipment, a dual-ring soil infiltrometer, are... (View More)
