Biodiversity Count
This exercise opens up discussion on global biodiversity loss. Students count the number of species they can find in a five-minute block of time in both an urban green space and natural, unmanaged forest area. They will begin to recognize low and high biodiversity areas and understand what affects biodiversity loss. This exercise can be completed in one normal two-hour lab session. This SERC Starting Point site includes learning goals, context for use, teaching tips, assessment, and references.

Hundred Board Activities 2
Students use "magic" to navigate around the hundred board. This activity introduces horizontal arrows which mean move one square in the direction the arrow points and vertical arrows which mean move up or down one row in the direction the arrow points. These activities support students as they develop understanding of powerful number patterns in the hundred board: (1) moving across or back one space means adding or subtracting one from the starting number; (2) moving up or down one row means add

NASA CONNECT The Venus Transit
In NASA CONNECT Venus Transit, students will learn about the importance of using scale models to represent the size and distance of objects in the solar system and beyond. They will be introduced to the astronomical unit (AU), the baseline distance from the Earth to the Sun, which astronomers use to determine the relative distances from the Earth to other planets, stars, asteroids, and objects in space. They will also discover fascinating facts about the Venus Transit, a celestial and historical

GLAST Large Area Telescope Simulator
The main scientific instrument on the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) is the Large Area Telescope (LAT). This interactive computer-based educational activity allows students in grades 11-14 and informal web users to see the results when gamma-ray photons of different energies and incident angles hit the LAT. The photons convert into electron-positron pairs which travel through 19 interleaved layers of silicon into the cesium-iodide calorimeter. Background information about GLAST and

Quantum Dots
Quantum Dots are man-made artificial atoms that confine electrons to a small space. As such they have atomic-like behavior and enable the study of quantum mechanical effects on a length scale that is around 100 times larger than the pure atomic scale. Quantum dots offer application opportunities in optical sensors, lasers, and advanced electronic devices for memory and logic. This seminar starts with an overview of wavelike and particle like properties and motivates the existence of quantum mech

Earth Exploration Toolbook Chapter: Creating Custom Map Images of Earth and Other Worlds
This chapter familiarizes users with Jules Verne Voyager, a freely available online map tool that includes data for Earth as well as 19 other planets and moons. Users create a variety of map images then save and import the images into a presentation or a word-processing document. In the activity, users explore the range of data that are available to create map images: 100 different types of data are available to characterize portions of Earth. In addition, Voyager has at least one type of data f

ATV: a very special delivery
Early in 2008, an Ariane 5 rocket blasted off from Europe’s spaceport in French Guiana. The rocked carried the most sophisticated lorry ever built – the European Space Agency’s Automated Transfer Vehicle, the ATV. From its first flight, ATV will play a vital role in International Space Station (ISS) servicing. Every 12 months or so, the ATV will haul 7.5 tonnes of cargo to the ISS, 400 km above the Earth. The video - addressed mostly to the youngsters- tells the story of a very special del
