Lesson 4 - Networks and servers

In this lesson, learners will be introduced to the concepts of peer-to-peer and server–client network models. First, they will create a virtual peer-to-peer network, and gain an understanding of how data is shared in such a network and what the pitfalls of this network model are. Then, they will be able to connect...

Ocean acidification and CO2 absorption

Many sea creatures such as crabs and shell fish are affected greatly by the levels of acid and temperatures of the ocean they live in as it prevents their outer shell development. This can lead to a depletion in numbers and a knock on effect along the food chain.

These resources include practical activities...

Particulate matter, ice, albedo and melting

Glaciers exposed to particulate matter (pollutants) undergo changes to their surface reflectivity. This phenomena called albedo leads to an increased heat absorption at the surface of the ice and as a result an acceleration in the melting process. This resource includes a practical activity that models the effects...

Climate change negotiations activity

An activity that encourages students to form opinions on the issues of climate change and put forward arguments in a simulated world climate change conference scenario. Groups are assigned to one of ten countries from around the world and represent them and pledge emission reductions. Both qualitative and...

Taking the pulse of the planet

This resource from the European Space Agency climate change resource pack provides information gathered from the electromagnetic spectrum which is used to monitor and measure changes in the Earth’s climate system. Resources focus upon how satellite instruments orbiting the Earth detect data from the visible light,...

Biodiversity and habitat loss

This resource from the European Space Agency climate change resource pack explores the topic of biodiversity and how habitat loss is a key driver of global biodiversity loss occurring today. In a series of activities students explore the importance of biodiversity focusing in particular on distributions of common...

Arctic sea ice and climate change

This resource from the European Space Agency climate change resource pack provides background information on the role of Arctic sea ice upon the Earth’s climate system. All activities are set in the context of the Northwest Passage. Changes in the amount of sea ice can disrupt normal ocean circulation, leading to...
