This web page covers the progress of the early 1960 Kapoho eruption of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii, and the damage it caused. The eruption caused havoc in lower Puna, an idyllic rural paradise until the lava fountains and flows covered farm land and villages including Kapoho Village and parts of Koa`e Village. During this time, the volcano's summit deflated and eventually collapsed. This page is part ... Full description.

This unit introduces younger students to the concept of relative versus absolute time and how geologists determine the age of geologic events and features. Topics include the laws that determine relative age (superposition, cross-cutting relationships, included fragments, and others), and how to re-construct the geologic history of an area using these relationships. There is also information on geologic ... Full description.

These two classroom exercises introduce students to stratigraphy and the law of superposition as well as seriation, dating techniques used by archaeologists to establish a relative chronology. They can be adapted to students at different levels using local materials. In the first exercise, dated materials such as newspapers may be used to illustrate the concepts; students may then manipulate materials ... Full description.

This site describes the structure and dynamics of plasma particles in the immediate vicinity of the Earth. The boundary between the Earth's magnetosphere and the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF), called the magnetopause, is described. It includes polar cusps, neutral points, and magnetic reconnection as proposed by James Dungey in 1961. Also mentioned is the bow shock due to the high speed of the ... Full description.

This e-journal article describes a qualitative that study that examines the perspectives of students in three Materials Science and Technology (MST) classes. MST classes are multidisciplinary and developed to replace much of the dreary, tedious atmosphere of many traditional science classrooms with a stimulating environment conducive to learning. Students learn problem-solving skills as scientists ... Full description.
