In this lesson students investigate bathymetric mapping of deep-sea habitats to see how deep-sea areas of the northwestern Hawaiian Islands can be mapped to facilitate their exploration with a manned submersible. Students will create a two-dimensional topographic map from bathymetric survey data, a three-dimensional model of landforms from a two-dimensional topographic map, and will interpret two- ...

In this video lecture, Helen Sharman, the first British astronaut, gives an account of her personal experiences on the space station Mir. Using models and film to illustrate key scientific concepts, she discusses the way the Third Law of Newton and convection apply to rockets, space flight, weightlessness and survival. Sharman explains how breathing, eating, using the toilet, and recycling were accomplished ... Full description.

In this activity, students will learn how a satellite communicates information to the earth. They will discover that satellites use a transmitter and reciever system to send information and that the information must be transmitted correctly, recieved, and understood for effective communication. They should also understand that satellites transmit information as a stream of numbers, and gain experience ... Full description.

In this activity students investigate the role of the Radio Plasma Imager (RPI) on the Image for Magnetopause-to-Auroral Global Exploration (IMAGE) satellite. They will discover that the RPI is capable of remotely sensing and determining the density, distance, and velocity of electrically charged clouds. The activity explores how radar works and how the data is collected and organized to form images. ... Full description.

In this activity, students work in groups to research Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, Hans Lippershey, or James Metius, scientists who all made advances related to the telescope. Each group will share results by making a presentation to the class. Then the class will decide who, if anyone, they think should be given credit for inventing the telescope, and why. They will then summarize their findings ... Full description.
