Learning Activities - Technology

In order to be competitive in the future workforce, students need to be familiar with various applications of technology. Summer Scholars students learning about the Internet as a research and communications tool. They also learned about the Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and the importance of knowing the location of environmental monitoring data.

Starting from web page templates students learned to make their own web page using an HTML editor. Students were able to share their Summer Scholars experience as well as their recommendation on the use of reclaimed water.

The Global Positioning Systems (GPS) is relatively new technology first used by the military, then made available for scientific, government and private use. These handheld units use signals from satellites in orbit to calculate longitude and latitude, as well as elevation, heading, and speed. The students used GPS units to record locations of their water sampling sites.
