Navigating Ocean Ice Sea Levels

Model the impact of changing global temperatures on melting ice and sea levels.

Most likely you’ve heard grownups in your life mention the term “climate change.” You may have heard about it in school, on the news, or even at home.

Climate change is a shift in typical weather patterns in a given area over a long term period of time. Catastrophic floods from severe storms or long dry seasons leading to drought and major forest fires are just a couple examples of climate change. One of the larger concerns stemming from climate change is its effect on melting ice caps. This experiment will show how melting ice on both land and sea can lead to climate change, in particular the global sea level.
