Smart Science labs are delivered in HTML5 for compatibility with all modern platforms. Students observe tides in Pleasant Bay on Cape Cod for the daylight hours for days they choose that span about a month's time.
The data may be analyzed for period, amplitude, and/or phase. Students measure time between P-wave and S-wave on real earthquake seismograms posted by the USGS.
They then plot circles around the seismograph locations on a map to find the approximate epicenter.
They do the multiplication of time by speed themselves and so may adjust the speed depending on distance, for example. Various objects such as marbles, beans, metal shot, and rocks are placed in a cylindrical glass container. Students measure the height of water after each addition and calculate porosity of each medium.
Other aspects of water erosion may be considered as well.

The Smart Science approach ensures that students understand the nature of science, learn scientific thinking skills, and come to appreciate the complexity and ambiguity of empirical work.
Smart Science real online science labs provide instructors and students with uniquely hands-on real lab experiments instead of simulations.A "Certificate of Completion" will be available to each student at the end of each activity.Details and get access to This is an interactive exercise about Geologic Time.Unlike most educational software, Ph ET simulations are free, easily translated into multiple languages, and available either online or offline, especially important for areas with poor or no internet connectivity.With their flexible design, the simulations can be used in many ways - as demos, homework, or inexpensive yet accurate and realistic lab alternatives.
