Traveling Through Time with the International Ocean Discovery Program: Scientific Ocean Drilling Reveals Earth's Past

Webinar, Free of Cost

The JOIDES Resolution (JR) is a ship that operates on behalf of the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) and is one of just a handful of vessels designed specifically to drill into the ocean floor for scientific research. The cylinders of sediment and rock that are recovered from the ocean floor—called "cores"—can be considered time machines, revealing secrets from Earth's past about geology, climate change, and the origins and extremes of life. The evidence these cores provide gives a vital foundation and real-world data for understanding key topics addressed in NGSS performance expectations.

In this session, participants will learn how to incorporate free JR resources into their curricula to make science real for their students. Attendees will take part in activities related to cores and microfossils, and will learn how to access resources including additional classroom activities and core replicas that can be borrowed for classroom use. Participants will come away with data-based resources that will get students engaged in real-world science.
