  • Earth Exploration Toolbook
    The Earth Exploration Toolbook is a collection of computer-based Earth science activities. Each activity, or chapter, introduces one or more data sets and an analysis tool that enables users to explore some aspect of the Earth system. Step-by-step instructions in each chapter walk users through an example — a case study in which they access data and use analysis tools to explore issues or concepts in Earth system science. In the course of completing a chapter, users produce and analyze maps, graphs, images, or other data products. The ultimate goal of each activity is to build user's skills and confidence so they can use data to conduct their own investigations of the Earth system.

  • Alliance to Save Energy
    Green Schools programming. Energy costs are an enormous expense for our nation's schools. To help free up more resources for education while strengthening academic learning, the Alliance's Green Schools Program engages students in creating energy-saving activities in their schools, using hands-on, real-world projects. Through basic changes in the operations, maintenance, and individual behavior, Green Schools has achieved reductions in energy use of 5 to 15 percent among participating schools. In addition, Green Schools encourages students to apply the lessons of energy-efficiency message in their homes and communities.

  • Bottled Water Versus the Environment Case Study: Questions and Concerns of Pure Water or Pure Hype in a Bottle
    Students use problem-based learning strategies and techniques to develop findings and make recommendations, along with preparing a press release in this case study. This case study explores the environmental effects associated with the production, consumption, and recycling related to bottled water. Students learn about state and federal regulations associated with the extraction of ground water and its potential impact on the environment, identify potential safety hazards with drinking water, and become aware of the economic and ecological costs of drinking water that has been bottled.
