GEOLogic: Museums and their Dinosaur Displays
GEOLogic questions are puzzles that were developed to support students understanding of geoscience concepts while challenging them to develop better logic and problem solving skills. In this exercise, students are asked to match five top museums with two fossils that they have on display based on clues presented from various points of view. This activity is appropriate for a high school science class or an introductory level undergraduate geoscience course, and can be given as an in-class assign

GEOLogic: Stream Discharge Rates - Rappahannock River Station
This webpage from SERC features GEOLogic questions, which are puzzles that were developed to support students understanding of geoscience concepts while challenging them to develop better logic and problem solving skills. In this example, students are asked to convert measurements in cubic feet per hour (cfh) to cubic feet per second (cfs) and then match up the names of the researchers measuring the flows at the river station with the correct flow rate. There is also a second part in which stude

"Gender, Race, and the Complexities of Science and Technology: A Problem-Based Learning Experiment,
"What can we learn about science and technology–and what can we do with that knowledge? Who are "we" in these questions?–whose knowledge and expertise gets made into public policy, new medicines, topics of cultural and political discourse, science education, and so on? How can expertise and lay knowledge about science and technology be reconciled in a democratic society? How can we make sense of the interactions of living and non-living, humans and non-humans, individual and collectivities i
