"Investigating Earth's Energy Balance
Knowledge of how earth reflects and absorbs energy from the sun is crucial to understanding climate and how it is changing. Using handheld computers and other digital tools, students will measure the temperature and the “reflectivity” of different colored materials. Students will plot the data, reach conclusions about how materials respond to solar radiation, and discuss the implications for earth’s polar regions and the earth as a whole."
