Bycatch, the unintended capture of animals in commercial fishing gear, is a hot topic in marine conservation today. The surprisingly high level of bycatch about 25% of the entire global catch is responsible for the decline of hundreds of thousands of dolphins, whales, porpoises, seabirds and sea turtles each year. Through this curricular unit, students analyze the significance of bycatch in the global ecosystem and propose solutions to help reduce bycatch. They become familiar with current attempts to reduce the fishing mortality of these animals. Through the associated activities, the challenges faced today are reinforced and students are stimulated to brainstorm about possible engineering designs or policy changes that could reduce the magnitude of bycatch.

Is climate change real? Yes, it is! And technologies to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions are being developed. One type of technology that is imperative in the short run is biofuels; however, biofuels must meet specifications for gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel, or catastrophic damage could occur. This course will examine the chemistry of technologies of bio-based sources for power generation and transportation fuels. We'll consider various biomasses that can be utilized for fuel generation, understand the processes necessary for biomass processing, explore biorefining, and analyze how biofuels can be used in current fuel infrastructure.

In the first of two sequential lessons, students create mobile apps that collect data from an Android device's accelerometer and then store that data to a database. This lesson provides practice with MIT's App Inventor software and culminates with students writing their own apps for measuring acceleration. In the second lesson, students are given an app for an Android device, which measures acceleration. They investigate acceleration by collecting acceleration vs. time data using the accelerometer of a sliding Android device. Then they use the data to create velocity vs. time graphs and approximate the maximum velocity of the device.

Animal welfare has been described as a complex, multi-faceted public policy issue which includes important scientific, ethical, and other dimensions. Improving our understanding of animal welfare, involves the fascinating study of animal behavior as well as the challenge of accessing the emotions of animals.

This is the On-Demand version of this course, which means you can start the course at any time and work through the course materials at your own pace. The materials and quizzes will always be available to you.

In this activity, students will explore how the Law of Conservation of Energy (the First Law of Thermodynamics) applies to atoms, as well as the implications of heating or cooling a system. This activity focuses on potential energy and kinetic energy as well as energy conservation. The goal is to apply what is learned to both our human scale world and the world of atoms and molecules.

Este Produto Educacional consiste em um caderno de sugestões de práticas pedagógicas a ser utilizado em atividades educacionais com objetivo de favorecer o ensino contextualizado das ciências ambientais a partir dos princípios biotecnológicos presentes nas Tecnologias Culturais Locais. O caderno de práticas pedagógicas interdisciplinares foi desenvolvido com o intuito de contribuir com uma ferramenta didática do processo educativo das ciências ambientais proporcionando conhecimentos ligados às habilidades propostas pela BNCC (BRASIL, 2017). A interdisciplinaridade relaciona várias disciplinas com o objetivo de enriquecer o conhecimento entre as mais diversas áreas e se justifica pela necessidade de se reorganizar e reagrupar os campos do saber para não perder a relevância e a significação dos problemas e a busca por soluções. Possibilita, também, a formação de um sujeito mais aberto, flexível, solidário, democrático e crítico. Mais além, reúne
estudos complementares de diversos especialistas em um contexto de estudo de âmbito mais coletivo.
