In this lesson, students explore different aspects of solar energy by building a solar hot box and testing various colors and materials to find the maximum temperature that can be reached. They will review the basic needs for alternative energy sources, identify three materials and colors that will produce maximum heat, and solve a design problem for the hot box. Full description.

This resource presents information about the use of satellites and laser beams to measure the movement of continents in order to confirm the Theory of Plate Tectonics. It explains that observatories are established on two continents and that by knowing the fixed location of the satellite, scientists can calculate the travel time of the laser beam to each observatory and triangulate to arrive at the ...

This site describes the three types of severe coastal storm impacts that the United States Geological Survey investigates at present. They are the hurricane impacts on the southeast United States, extra-tropical storm impacts on the U.S. west coast during El-Nino winters, and northeaster impacts on the U.S. east coast. It explains the dynamics of each type of storm and the damage each can cause. The ... Full description.
