High-Adventure Science

Exploring Evidence, Models and Uncertainty Related to Questions Facing Scientists Today

High-Adventure Science brings several of the big unanswered questions in Earth and space science — think climate change, the availability of freshwater, land management and more — to middle and high school science classrooms.

Each module includes interactive computer-based systems models and real-world data on unanswered questions scientists are facing today. Students explore evidence and discuss the issues of certainty — and uncertainty — with the models and data.
