Students Build Challenger II Aircraft to Study Physics; Then Donate Plane to KWS

Lessons from Elkhorn

Dr. Steven W. Moore, of the Division of Science and Environmental Policy of California State University, Monterey Bay, received a Lindbergh Grant in 2005 for a project entitled, "Engaging Students in Video Technology Deployment and Experimental Design to Study Animals in the Wild."

The Project

Television and the Internet have dramatically increased public awareness of the wonderful diversity and interdependence of life on this planet and have played an obvious and important role in educating millions about the importance of environmental conservation. However, these same technologies may be undermining the long-term commitment of society to conservation as children are spending more time in front of the television or computer rather than developing a close relationship with nature through physical experience.

During this study, Dr. Moore plans to bring middle- and high-school students up to date on the latest in wireless video and Internet technology while getting them outdoors and giving them a fun, safe way to connect on a deeper, more meaningful level with wildlife near their homes and schools. Students will design and conduct experiments in which they will use technology by positioning solar powered web cameras, infrared lights, long-range wireless Internet access equipment, and web-linked motion sensors outside in natural settings to answer their own questions about wildlife. This experience may strengthen their involvement and commitment to environmental preservation.
