On-Demand Pandemics Triggered by Climate Change ›
Pandemics have (literally) plagued humans throughout history. Before there was airplane travel, it usually took a major environmental disruption to create the necessary conditions to allow for a global spread, and that disruption was often provided by a rapid change in climate. We will examine the environmental factors that helped trigger pandemics such as the 1918 Spanish Flu (La Nina), the 1820 Cholera outbreak (eruption of Mt. Tambora), and the 14th-century bubonic plague (start of the Little Ice Age).
On-Demand Biosphere II: What makes a scientific failure? ›
Learn about our Biosphere I – The Earth – while engaging in the interesting tale of Biosphere II. Biosphere II didn’t meet the goals it set out to achieve, but was it a failure? Well, yes. But also, no! In this workshop, you’ll use hands-on learning, digital explorations, data analysis, and print resources to gather evidence and apply learning to form your own conclusions.
On-Demand From CRISPR to 23-and Me: Meeting the Challenges of Today’s Biology ›
New techniques such as CRISPR gene editing, mitochondrial transformation, and gene drives are changing the ways in which living organisms are studied and modified. I will review these techniques, and introduce students to a series of activities that will enable them to confront the social, moral, and ethical issues raised by the new human genetics.
On-Demand Ten Ways the Earth is Dangerous To Humans ›
We are currently in the midst of one of the worst pandemics of this generation, but it is important to remember that there are also many non-biological catastrophes that nature can throw at us and that a large reason that our global population has grown so large so fast (now approaching 8 billion) is that Earth has been relatively quiet for the past two centuries. In this presentation, Professor Wysession will take us through a Top-10 list of Earth and planetary events such as supervolcanoes, asteroid impacts, magnetic field reversals, massive underwater avalanches, and enormous solar flares that have significantly impacted life in the past and could do so again in the future.
On-Demand Modeling a Sneeze: Kinematics in Pictures ›
Social distancing recommendations specify we keep at least 2 meters away from each other. Why? To answer this question, we’ll simulate and model the trajectory of particles in a sneeze. Using pictures and graphs, instead of blindly plugging numbers into equations, we’ll solve what is essentially a projectile problem. We’ll also learn about distributions while determining the average force and energy exerted during a sneeze.
On-Demand The Adaptable Human Body ›
The human body is equipped with remarkable systems to defend and recover against harm and maintain homeostasis. Let’s discover and investigate these complex systems and feedback methods that work together to maintain homeostasis in the human body and apply it to the public health issues of today.
On-Demand Developing STEM Lessons with the W.H.E.R.E. Model ›
Michael Comer and Joanne Vasquez, authors of STEM Lesson Essentials and STEM Lesson Guideposts, presents Developing STEM Lessons with the W.H.E.R.E. Model
On-Demand Journey Through Google Expeditions ›
How can you shift from presenting topics in isolation to creating learning experiences that integrate STEM education? COVID 19 has placed an emphasis on the ‘Why’ behind the need for STEM education. By integrating STEM, students gain understanding of topics as they figure out why something is happening or create a solution to a problem such as the current pandemic. The focus of learning needs to shift from the end product to the actual process of learning.
On-Demand Problem Solving, Inquiry, and Scientific Thinking in Science ›
Michael Padilla, author Elevate Science, presents Problem Solving, Inquiry, and Scientific Thinking in Science: Problem solving, inquiry and scientific practices continue to be a central element of science teaching. With the implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards, it is even more critical that teachers develop ways to get students to use scientific practices to problem solve and inquire. This session focuses on Next Gen practices and will outline teaching strategies you can use to develop these important skills.
On-Demand STEM INTEGRATION: It’s not about the product - it’s about the process ›
