Deep Earth Academy published three new activities during the month of March in collaboration with International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) scientists and former School of Rock participants. They include:

  • How Scientists Conduct Research is a collaborative effort with Dr. Tracy Quan at Oklahoma State and Eddie Cohen that helps students understand how science works.
  • Tale of the Resolution Reading Guide is a series of questions and activities written by Rocker Mike Passow for use with our Tales of the Resolution graphic novel series. These activities help students develop Common Core skills and are a part of the Earth2Class project.
  • Core Stories: Recognizing Patterns in Earth’s History is an activity designed to accompany our glacial/interglacial core model.  Written by a host of former Rockers and IODP scientists, students make core observations and follow a series of activities to make interpretations about the sediment layers.

Deep Earth Academy also submitted a Toyota proposal to fund Student Expression of Achievement (SEA), a regional program that expands upon the School of Rock.
