Tech Meets Green

Jason Flom 5th grade teacher in Tallahassee, FL

Would love to compile some resources related to the technology one might find in a green school or a school looking to integrate more environmental awareness.

What type of scientific 'toys', digital tools (such as apps), and technological infrastructure are you finding out there? Weather stations? Solar panels? Climate change apps? Skyping with scientists? Monitoring research?

I look forward to seeing what's out there.

Cheers.

I just came across this app: Just Science, that provides viewers with climate change data.

Looks pretty cool. Might be interesting for students to make comparisons of the variability of climatic change in different locations.

Questions we may ask: Where is the most change occurring? Why might that be?
Challenges: Find the place with the least amount of change. Find the place with the most.

Best part: It's free.
