     Determine the response time of a Temperature Probe.
     Learn about different data collection modes and when to use each.

2. Soil Study
     Measure the pH of soil samples.
     Determine the amount of water retained by soil samples.
     Compare soil samples.

3. Ocean Floor Mapping
     Use a Motion Detector to measure distances.
     Map simulated ocean floors.
     Analyze graphs to find the heights of objects on a simulated ocean floor.

4. Water Hardness Study
     Use soap to find water hardness.
     Use a Conductivity Probe to find water hardness.
     Find the hardness of the water in your school.
     Apply what you learn as you do a water hardness study.

5. A Water Field Study
     Use a Temperature Probe to measure water temperature.
     Use a Conductivity Probe to measure the conductivity of water.
     Use a pH Sensor to measure the pH of water.

     Measure the light intensity at the same locations.
     Observe and classify the living organisms at those locations.
     Determine if there are temperature differences between the ground and air above it.
     Organize and present your results.

12. What Causes the Seasons?
     Monitor simulated warming of your town by the sun in the winter.
     Monitor simulated warming of your town by the sun in the summer.
     Interpret your results.

13. Solar Homes
     Measure temperature.
     Find the relationship between thermal mass and the ability of a solar home to retain heat.
     Design, build and test a model solar home.
