## The Solar Constant since 1600

In this problem set, learners will analyze a graph of solar irradiance since 1610. Answer key is provided. They will consider average insolation, percent changes and the link between irradiance and climate change.

## For Good Measure Video

This short video (2:01) uses an engaging approach to emphasize the importance of tracking and studying precipitation.

## Atmospheric Science Mission

In this lesson, students use an online, multimedia module to simulate the techniques that scientists might use to find a planet that has the atmospheric conditions required for human habitability. Learners will learn about NASA research and careers in atmospheric sciences.

## Reflection

In this activity, students learn that infrared light is reflected in the same manner as visible light. Students align a series of mirrors so that they can turn on a TV with a remote control when the remote is not in a direct line with the TV.

## Site Seeing: Beginning

In this fieldwork activity, students learn that when setting up a research design a system's boundaries are based on the question(s) a scientist wants to answer.

## The Fall of the Ruler

This activity shows how an ordinary ruler can measure human reaction time (RT). Learners will convert a standard ruler into a time ruler (relating time and distance) and measure each others RT. They will also calculate means and variances and the RT required to accomplish a specific task.

## Exploring Relationships Among Variables Six Months Apart

In this activity, student teams explore connections between parts of the Earth system, by examining a time series of environmental data maps.

## Kepler Mission Fact Sheet

This 2-page color fact sheet briefly describes NASA's Kepler mission, its instruments, and ground system. Also included are tables listing the instrument parameters and the major institutions involved.

## Magnetic Earth and the Lithosphere

In this problem set, learners will use a map of satellite data on Earth's surface magnetism and determine coordinates and distances for variations in magnetism. Answer key is provided. This is part of Earth Math: A Brief Mathematical Guide to Earth Science and Climate Change.

## NASA eClips™: Launchpad: ICESat-2 - Next Generation Technology

Learn how the second generation of the Ice, Cloud, and Land Elevation Satellite, better known as ICESat-2, is being used to map the ice structures in the world's polar regions.
