ClimateSim - a climate-change simulation app from ScienceBySimulation
Rating

ClimateSim is a fast and simple climate modeling and simulation tool. It is a web app that is freely available to anyone interested in climate science. ClimateSim allows users to model scenarios of greenhouse gas emissions in the current century and simulates the first-order response of the earth system. ClimateSim makes climate simulation accessible in a simplified form and provides an easy-to-use simulation platform for performing virtual climate experiments. ClimateSim is primarily targeted as a science education tool for undergraduate and advanced high-school students in physics, environmental science and related courses. Instructors can use ClimateSim to illustrate climate-change concepts, demonstrate dynamic relationships between climate variables, and assign simulation-based exercises as part of their courses. It is also an appropriate and accessible tool that policymakers, journalists and others can use to get a better understanding and working knowledge of the basics of climate science.

Epplets
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

Epplets present extended Parsons puzzles. In a Parsons puzzle, the student is presented a problem statement, and a program to implement it, but with the lines in the program scrambled. The student must reassemble the lines in their correct order and eliminate distracters. The tutor provides feedback until the student arrives at the correct solution. Epplets help students construct the algorithm for a problem.

This section explores several hypothetical scenarios of nuclear-weapon detonations on U.S. cities. These scenarios are meant to illustrate the possibilities of such events. Scenarios include a "what-if" scenario of a 150-kiloton nuclear explosion by terrorists on New York City, and the effects of a nuclear accident or "broken arrow" on board a nuclear submarine in San Francisco Bay.

Gulf Oil Spill
Unrestricted Use
Public Domain
Rating

The newness of the Deepwater Horizon/BP spill limits the number of educational products designed to investigate and teach about impacts to the Gulf ecosystem. Ongoing efforts are being undertaken to develop lessons, media, and resources for educators to use in their teaching to help students and the public to better understand this event. The materials provided with this collection present the facts surrounding the spill and ongoing research, monitoring, and restoration efforts. More general education products from previous spills are provided to help educators present the concepts of human impacts on the ocean, oil specific impacts, spill clean-up, and the effects of toxins on natural environments. This site will be updated periodically as more information becomes available.
