Storytelling can save the Earth. Stories have the power to inform, raise awareness, and bring about change. Now more than ever, science needs storytelling. Our brains are hardwired to learn and connect with others through stories. Personal narratives that tap into the scientist's voice are effective tools for communicating technical information. Digital Stories in Science provides a step-by-step approach on how to combine textual, visual, and aural information into a compelling digital narrative.

Controversies in the Earth Sciences

Resource Description

Think science has all the answers? Think again. This course will use real, authentic data to explore and investigate modern controversies in Earth Sciences. Use tide gauge records to understand how countries around the world attempt to protect themselves from tsunami events. Process seismic data to predict earthquake recurrence in the New Madrid seismic zone, right here in the breadbasket of the US. Sort through the millions of years of the geologic timeline to shed some light on what actually did, and did not, kill the dinosaurs.
