Coastal Research Technology uses text, graphics, and QuickTime movies for students to learn about the scientific technology used on research vessels on the Carolina Coast.
Here are ways you can integrate Coastal Research Technology into your classroom:
Use the resources from the Coastal Research Technology section to have students brainstorm regarding the tasks of a coastal oceanographer and/or a coastal geologist. Ask students to think about what kind of tools these scientists might use.
Instruct students to explore the Coastal Research Technology section to identify the scientific instruments used by oceanographers and coastal geologists to collect data. Have your students use Internet search engines to locate actual coastal data sets acquired with the coastal research equipment.
