A STEM Ice Core Investigation That Integrates the Three
Dimensions of NGSS
Los Angeles Convention Center - 502A
Come discover a multidisciplinary, open-ended
investigation that incorporates absolute and relative dating, anomalies,
historical context, volcanoes, solar proton events, energy cycles, Earth
systems, terrestrial events, and supernovas.
Takeaways: 1. Students will have a better understanding of the process of constructing knowledge; 2. Students will have to analyze and defend their results; and 3. Sometimes there is no answer key, only possible solutions from constructing and analyzing data from several sources that cross traditional disciplines.
