ED014:
Demonstrations, Hands-on Activities and Simple Measurements for Education




Poster Only Session: This session has been requested by the conveners to only be offered in poster format. No oral sessions will accompany this session. Learn more


Session ID#: 22157

Session Description:
Share your most effective, most fun, and most interesting science demonstrations, hands-on activities, and simple measurements that help learners of any age understand concepts related to any AGU field.  Be sure to include instructions (or a link to the instructions), as well as alignments to the Next Generation Science Standards or other educational standards, where appropriate. Sharing your accomplishments can contribute to the capabilities of others who can benefit from your experiences. All types of educators are welcome, from elementary to postgraduate, to those in informal science settings.   If you want to present your demo at your poster, don't forget to order a table or electricity if you will need it (tables, power, etc. will be at an extra cost; ordering information available on the AGU website in late fall 2017).
