Can Gases Act as a Greenhouse?
In this lab, students will infer a potential for increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leading to global warming by contrasting the temperature rise in a CO2 rich atmosphere to that of normal air when both environments are exposed to a bright light in a controlled experiment.
Carbon on the Move
Through a reading, demonstration stations, and completion of a puzzle, students will recognize how respiration and photosynthesis move carbon through the earth system, how fossil fuels were formed, and how human activities have altered this movement on a global scale.
How do microwaves heat up your coffee? Adjust the frequency and amplitude of microwaves. Watch water molecules rotating and bouncing around. View the microwave field as a wave, a single line of vectors, or the entire field.
Salts & Solubility
Add different salts to water, then watch them dissolve and achieve a dynamic equilibrium with solid precipitate. Compare the number of ions in solution for highly soluble NaCl to other slightly soluble salts. Relate the charges on ions to the number of ions in the formula of a salt. Calculate Ksp values.
Is it a tumor? Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) can tell. Your head is full of tiny radio transmitters (the nuclear spins of the hydrogen nuclei of your water molecules). In an MRI unit, these little radios can be made to broadcast their positions, giving a detailed picture of the inside of your head.

Water: Source of Health; Source of Illness
helps students examine the connections between water and disease in four West African countries and then devise a strategy to fight one water-borne illness in rural Africa.
A Sense of Water
This site asks students to discover how the need for water can be felt, seen, and heard in the song, voice, craft, religion, and ritual of a culture. They then capture this sense of water in a narrative poem.
Bringing Water to a Lesotho Village
invites students to conduct research and then simulate a Lesotho village water committee that is designing a water supply system to improve living and health conditions.
