Abstract Details (PID = P135)
Title:Connecting Students to University Research Through ROCHSS (P135)
Description:Learn about ROCHSS - Research Outreach Carbonate Hot Springs Simulation and how you can be involved in writing and using developed lesson plans to incorporate ROCHSS in the classroom. Dr. Bruce Fouke, Professor of Geology and Microbiology at UIUC, has been researching Mammoth Hot Springs at Yellowstone National Park for over 20 years. Now the Institute for Genomic Biology (IGB) has developed a hot spring simulation that can be accessed remotely for student use. Watch in real time as travertine is deposited, use data recorded by sensors (pH, temperature), Skype a Scientist on Location or simply watch videos from Dr. Fouke and IGB available on the website. Connections can be made with Biology (origins of life, microbial activity), Chemistry (buffers, reaction rates, solubility), and Earth Science. Lesson plans are currently being developed with more to be produced in the coming year. Teachers are encouraged to collaborate with IGB Outreach to participate in lesson plan development opportunities and utilizing the resources to connect students to scientific research.
