Monster Rain: Monitoring the Climate Change & Global Warming with Experiments & Simulations (iStage 1)

Sintflutartiger Regen: Experimente und Modelle zu Klimawandel und Erderwärmung (iStage 1)

This unit deals with the real world. The classroom can preferably be exchanged with outdoor monitoring opportunities.

Monitoring the climate is recommended for students age 14–18 (or younger) studying applied sciences while working interdisciplinarily in physics and biology. It triggers students’ critical thinking abilities while allowing them to suggest and develop methods and experiments that involve local problems. Additionally, by increasing communication, it offers a regional and global understanding and perception of education on sustainable development.

The monster-rain project will teach students to make a small animation of their own, allowing them to see how programming can be used to describe and make calculations in a simple physical system.

Please find the additional material mentioned in the text below. The project is taken from the brochure ‘iStage: ICT in Science Teaching’ from the unit ‘Our Environment’. You can download the complete brochure here (printed version no longer available). The material has been developed by 22 teachers from 15 countries. The project has been supported by SAP.
