Operation Montserrat


Operation Montserrat
During e-Mission: Operation Montserrat, students get data about the erupting volcano's seismic activity. They also track the hurricane approaching this Caribbean island. To outwit possible disaster, students must solve the critical problems facing the islanders. They don't just learn, they "live" through a natural disaster's Earth-changing power.
Can be done with room based video conferencing or with a small web cam via the Internet.
A full day training for the teacher is required to participate in this program.
Preparation
Students prepare for 4 weeks prior to mission day. First they select an area of expertise. They must decide which facet of Earth system science interests them: the biosphere, lithosphere, atmosphere or hydrosphere.
Grade level:6-12
cost: $500.00 (1-9 e-missions) $300.00 (10+ e-missions)
