SageModeler

The SageModeler systems modeling tool facilitates student exploration and understanding of phenomena through the development of their own computational models. Students can validate their models by comparing model output to real-world data sources or output from experimental simulations. The intuitive drag and drop interface for creating and linking system components does not require formal programming or equation writing, making it possible for a wide range of ages and abilities to engage in modeling, systems thinking, and computational thinking.

High-Adventure Science

High-Adventure Science brings several of the big unanswered questions in Earth and space science to middle and high school science classrooms: What is the future of Earth's climate? Will there be enough fresh water? Is there life in space? Will the air be clean enough to breathe? Can we feed the growing population? and What are our energy choices? Each module includes interactive computer-based systems models and real-world data on unanswered questions scientists are facing today.

Data Nuggets

Data Nuggets are free classroom activities, co-designed by scientists and teachers, designed to bring contemporary research and authentic data into the classroom. Data Nuggets include a connection to the scientist behind the data and the true story of their research. Each activity gives students practice working with “messy data” and interpreting quantitative information.

Short Description: 

Data Nuggets are free classroom activities, co-designed by scientists and teachers, designed to bring contemporary research and authentic data into the classroom. Students are guided through the entire process of science, including identifying hypotheses and predictions, visualizing and interpreting data, making evidence based claims, and asking their own questions for future research.
