Radioactive Decay, Ryan Case, Jayson Pritchard Jun 2016

Radioactive Decay, Ryan Case, Jayson Pritchard

Lesson Plans

The purpose of this model is to simulate the decay of radioactive nuclei to the stable isotope Lead-206. First and foremost, the model is designed to illustrate the concept of a half-life, which is the amount of time it takes for half a given quality of nuclei to decay to the next nuclei. In addition it also demonstrates that different radioisotopes have different half-lives than one another, and that the mass is conserved in nuclear reactions but not necessarily the number of protons, neutrons, or nuclei.


Insolation And Ecosystem, Margaret Allocco, Chris Haller Jun 2016

Insolation And Ecosystem, Margaret Allocco, Chris Haller

Lesson Plans

The purpose of this model is to demonstrate the impact of angle of insolation and precipitation on the health of a specific climate zone’s ecosystem


Exploring Density, Jamye Babocsi, Agnieszka Wallace Jun 2016

Exploring Density, Jamye Babocsi, Agnieszka Wallace

Lesson Plans

This density model is designed to allow students to explore how mass, volume, and temperature directly affect the density of an object or liquid


Biomagnification And Bioaccumulation, Grace Linder, Lauren Thresh Jun 2016

Biomagnification And Bioaccumulation, Grace Linder, Lauren Thresh

Lesson Plans

This computational model is intended to demonstrate how micropollutants effect ecology via the living environment concepts of biomagnification and bioaccumulation. Specifically, this model shows how concentrations of a micropollutant change throughout an aquatic food chain.


Chemical Weathering, Elizabeth Kreppel, Kaitlin Ordiway Jun 2016

Chemical Weathering, Elizabeth Kreppel, Kaitlin Ordiway

Lesson Plans

This model shows the effects of acid rain on different rock types.


Carbon Emissions, Breanna Hummel, Samantha Slossar Jun 2016

Carbon Emissions, Breanna Hummel, Samantha Slossar

Lesson Plans

This model demonstrates how a population affects the carbon emissions in a region.


Osmosis And Plasmolysis, Andy Bumstead, Anthony Raymond Jun 2016

Osmosis And Plasmolysis, Andy Bumstead, Anthony Raymond

Lesson Plans

This model simulates the processes of diffusion and osmosis in a plant cell


Titration, Ryan Case, Jayson Pritchard Jun 2016

Titration, Ryan Case, Jayson Pritchard

Lesson Plans

This model is meant to represent what is going on during a titration at the particle level


Decomposition And Growth, Margaret Allocco, Chris Haller Jun 2016

Decomposition And Growth, Margaret Allocco, Chris Haller

Lesson Plans

This model shows is a simple representation of decomposition and growth. As students move the arrow over different sprites in the model, the sprites will “talk” asking questions and providing information to the user.


Sea Turtle Survival, Grace Linder, Lauren Thresh Jun 2016

Sea Turtle Survival, Grace Linder, Lauren Thresh

Lesson Plans

This model is intended to demonstrate the heavy predation and low survival rate of hatchling sea turtles
