# Water in the Atmosphere

In this activity, participants learn about the atmosphere by making observations and taking measurements. They will go outside and use scientific equipment to collect atmospheric moisture data (temperature, relative humidity, precipitation and cloud... (View More)

# Water in the Geosphere

In this activity, participants learn about the geosphere by making observations and taking measurements. They will go outside and use scientific equipment to investigate water in the soil by measuring soil moisture, temperature, color and... (View More)

# Rain Gauge Activity

In this activity, students face an engineering challenge based on real-world applications. They are tasked with developing a tool they can use to measure the amount of rain that falls each day. Students will find out why freshwater is important,... (View More)

# Discovering Your "Yardsticks" Are "Metersticks"

This lesson uses a simple discrepant event to demonstrate the underlying cause for early miscalculation of the size of the Milky Way galaxy. By standardizing the Cepheid period-luminosity relationship without recognizing there were two types of... (View More)

# THEMIS Magnetometer Line-Plots

This is an activity about the properties and characteristics of Earth’s magnetic field as shown through magnetometer data and its 3D vector nature. This resource builds understanding of conceptual tools such as the addition of vectors and... (View More)

# Amazing - Saturn is So Far, Far Away!

In this lesson, learners will create an outdoor, to-scale model of the distances between the Sun, Earth, and Saturn. They will then conduct a guided walk to Saturn - which gives students an understanding of how far away Saturn is from Earth and the... (View More)

# Zooming In on Active Galaxies

This activity focuses on the question, What do active galaxies look like when viewed from different distances? Students work in small groups to learn about the small angle formula, construct a template, and use it to correctly measure the angular... (View More)
