Description: Science, Technology, and a Changing Environment: Measuring Change to Predict the Future

Southeastern Massachusetts is home to a variety of habitats that support a wealth of plants and animals, all of which respond to our changing climate in interesting and measurable ways. Join engineers, scientists, and naturalists this summer and discover how new technologies with diverse sensory capabilities can transform data collection and data visualization and empower us to understand their impacts more fully as we model these changes and predict how they may affect our quality of life, from our homes to our parks to our workplaces. Find new ways to engage your students with the Science and Engineering Practices, including using mathematics, analyzing and interpreting data and engaging in argument from evidence, and develop standards-driven, inquiry-based investigations that will allow you to incorporate your learning into your students’ classroom experience.

Partners & Collaborators: Mass Audubon’s Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary; Sensata Technologies; Manomet, Inc.
