WeatherHawk Weather Station Protocol
This resource provides instructions on how to log atmosphere data using a WeatherHawk weather station. A weather station is setup to measure and record atmospheric measurements at 15-minute intervals and can be transferred to the GLOBE program via email. Students can view data for their school that are continuous and show variations within a day. The data collected includes wind speed and direction and pressure thereby supporting a more complete study of meteorology using GLOBE. Students pursue
Interactive Storytelling is our Project Xanadu
Jason Rohrer speaks at the Art History of Games Symposium on February 6, 2010 in the High Museum of Art's Rich Auditorium on the campus of the Woodruff Arts Center, in midtown Atlanta. The symposium was presented by Georgia Tech and the Savannah College of Art and Design. Imagine freshly-generated dramatic experiences unfurling before your eyes and changing based on your inputs. Imagine dynamic characters that react—grow angry at you, laugh at your jokes, or even fall in love with you. Intera
GLOBE Cave Protocol Field Guide: Comparing Surface and Subterranean Environments
The GLOBE Cave Protocol Field Guide utilizes existing GLOBE protocols to explore an extreme environment. Caves provide an opportunity to utilize GLOBE protocols to investigate underground environments and compare them to surface environments. Outside the cave, students record elevation, MUC, latitude and longitude, air temperature, relative humidity and air pressure. Inside the cave, students record air temperature, relative humidity and air pressure as well as observe and describe cave features

Computer-aided Land Cover Mapping Protocol
The purpose of the resource is to produce a land cover type map from the digital file of a Landsat satellite image using MultiSpec software.
Davis Weather Station Protocol
This resource provides instructions on how to log atmosphere data using a Davis weather station. A weather station is setup to measure and record atmospheric measurements at 15-minute intervals and can be transferred to the GLOBE program via email. Students can view data for their school that are continuous and show variations within a day. The data collected includes wind speed and direction and pressure thereby supporting a more complete study of meteorology using GLOBE. Students pursue a more
The purpose of this resource is to measure and classify the plant life at a Land Cover Site to help determine the MUC classification.
Texas Tech's String Project Strikes Chord With Aspiring Young Musicians
The Texas Tech String Project was founded in 2001 with the help of the National String Project Consortium and the American String Teachers' Association. The program was originally funded by a three-year grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education and matched by money from Texas Tech. The university, student instruction fees and other grants now fund the program. More information: http://today.ttu.edu/2009/11/project-strikes-cord-with-aspiring-young-musicians/ More inform
Margaret Sanger Papers Project
This site looks at the work of this advocate for women's reproductive freedom. Sanger worked to help develop simpler, less costly, and more effective methods of birth control. Bibliographies, biographies, selected papers, a newsletter, and links to documents on and off the website help illustrate the life of this remarkable individualist.

Tardigrade Species Distribution Project: Lesson Plan
This online lesson plan was designed for students taking part in the active research project to document the distribution of a new species of tardigrade, a microscopic invertebrate animal. The project is part of a nationwide online collaborative research project. The lesson plan offers instructional procedures for teachers and lists materials and procedures for collecting, observing, and culturing tardigrades. The lesson involves collecting samples in the field, examining and classifying tartigr
Making of Project Genie
Professor Hugh Montgomery (Director, UCL Institute for Human Health and Performance) has interests beyond his groundbreaking research at UCL-- he is also helping to shape the way children view the issue of climate change through Project Genie. Originally conceived of as a storybook to teach schoolchildren about climate change, Project Genie has evolved into an animated film and a curriculum for use in schools. http://www.projectgenie.org.uk/
Optional Soil Infiltration Protocol
The purpose of this resource is to determine the rate at which water soaks into the ground. Students place two cans into the soil and add water to them to a depth of at least 5 cm. Students measure and record the time it takes the water level to drop a fixed 2 - 4 cm distance. Students repeat the measurement to determine how easily water moves vertically through the soil.
Fire Fuel Protocol
The purpose of the resource is to measure the different types of fuels for fires.
Soil Fertility Protocol
The purpose of this resource is to measure the amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium in each horizon in a soil profile. Using a NPK test kit, students mix a dry, sieved soil sample into a solution and chemically extract the N, P, and K as nitrate, phosphate, and potassium. The N, P, and K amounts in the sample are determined by comparing the solution to a color chart. Students describe the N, P, K amounts as high, medium, low, or none. These measurements are conducted three times for ea
2010 Penn Reading Project: "The Big Necessity"
Through their collective reading and discussion of University of Pennsylvania alum Rose George's "The Big Necessity," incoming Penn students were introduced to the topic of human waste and how it is and is not disposed of. Participants in the Penn Reading Project discussed this serious health issue, improved sanitation practices and thus better health around the world. During a large group question-and-answer session, the author, who had flown in from London specifically to take part, addressed
Penn Students Clean Up Riverbanks in Year of Water Service Project
More than 130 Penn students volunteered to clean up the banks of the Delaware River at Neshaminy State Park Sept. 19 on the first of six days of service under the Year of Water theme for the academic year 2010-11. Penn's student Eco-Reps, the Undergraduate Assembly and community service groups in the College Houses led the clean-up effort, along with United By Blue, a local organic clothing manufacturer. Clean-ups continue throughout the week at Bartram Gardens, Pennypacker State Park and othe
