Exploring Seafloor Volcanoes in Cyberspace: NOAA's "Ocean Explorer" Inspires Inquiry
Hjelm, Elizabeth
Science Scope, v34 n9 p44-51 Jul 2011
Seafloor exploration being done by scientists is an ideal way to introduce students to technology as a tool for inquiry. The same technology that allows scientists to share data in near real time can also provide students the tools to become researchers. NOAA's Ocean Explorer Explorations website is a rich research data bank that can be used by inquisitive middle school students to ask their questions and use the same data scientists do to find answers. (Contains 3 figures and 1 online resource.)
