The MYPond project is an investigation of the chemical reactions, biological processes and inflow/outflow balances found within a pond environment. Instrumentation has been established in two ponds near each other so that a variety of chemical and physical properties are measured at various depths at 15-minute time intervals. Data can be viewed either in real-time or accessed from an archive, and ... Full description.

This activity is about how fossil fuels release carbon. Learners will use toys, sand and other materials to simulate a city, considering the formation of fossil fuels and how burning these releases carbon and produces warming. As part of the discussion, they will review the respiration equation. They will then create a mural illustrating the path of the carbon from dead forest, to fossil fuel, to ... Full description.
