Carolina EcoKits®: Climate Mechanisms

(in stock)


Grades 9-12.

  • Model the rotation of the earth and infer the effects on air currents
  • Observe how the sun's radiant energy is distributed unevenly across the earth's surface
  • Use convection fluid to demonstrate how air currents are affected by convection

Students use a model globe and convection fluid to simulate factors that affect climate, including rotation of the earth, the distribution of solar energy on the surface of the earth, and the Coriolis effect. Students fill small vials with convection fluid to simulate how convection affects the movement of air masses. Kit accommodates a class of 32 students working in 8 groups of 4.
