NASA EarthKam project enables students to take photographs of Earth
from a camera flown on a space shuttle orbiter. During the mission,
students use interactive Web pages to monitor the orbiter's flight path
and to select areas of interest to photograph. Within hours, students
can access the digital images on the Web and then use the images to
conduct their own investigations of Earth.
Carolina Coastal Science Web site is an innovative, inquiry-based science
resource that utilizes the interactive technologies of a Web browser
to explore science in coastal Carolina. It was developed based on the
goals stated in the National Science Education Standards and has been
aligned with the North Carolina Science Curriculum Standards.
is a simulation of two molecules of Hydrogen Iodide interacting with
each other. One molecule is designated as the "bullet" molecule,
which is shot into the "target" molecule. The hydrogen atom
is displayed as the small red sphere, and the iodide is shown as the
larger blue sphere. The various game levels allow the user to control
different motions of the molecules. Your objective is to get the molecules
to react to form a molecule of Hydrogen.
Way Is North? is an activity that allows students to develop skills
in understanding location by exploring a variety of unique geological
formations using QuickTime Virtual Reality (QTVR) panoramas and topographic
activity allows you to explore a variety of dinosaur fossil bones from
the Dinosaur National Monument quarry using Quicktime Virtual Reality
(QTVR) panoramas and digital still imagery.
