LEO - The Lehigh Earth Observatory

The Lehigh Earth Observatory (LEO), has a broad charge to monitor and study earth and environmental systems and the ways in which these systems interact with human society. The observatory is dedicated to active observation of natural phenomena, to archiving information about the earth and its environmental systems, to analyzing that information, and to communicating effectively the results of its observations and studies to users whose activities impact the earth. LEO provides a mechanism to engage students in the study of the earth and its environment.

LEO EnviroSci Inquiry

The Lehigh Earth Observatory (LEO) has also prepared an Environmental Science inquiry learning site. The LEO EnviroSci Inquiry Web site is a K-12 outreach project from LEO - the Lehigh Earth Observatory and the SERVIT (Science Education Research in Visual Instructional Technologies) Group in the College of Education at Lehigh University. EnviroSci Inquiry enables teachers, students, and the public to learn about environmental science content knowledge from Lehigh University LEO scientists and interns. Learning activities actively engage participants in data collection, analyzing data, working with Global Information Systems (GIS) databases, and engaging in science-specific pedagogical practices that incorporate Web-based and other technologies to be implemented into the science classrooms. Environmental science curricular activities enable students to use probeware, Web-based telecommunication tools, QuickTime Virtual Reality (QTVR), and other Internet resources to learn about environmental issues. Curricular activities emphasize student-directed scientific discovery of their local environment aligned to the National Science Education Standards, the National Geography Standards and the National Educational Technology Standards.
