High Tech Coconuts

I’m definitely in a project-based learning mood this week, especially if it involves science and the outdoors.

It’s worth reading about the High-Tech Coconuts deployed and used by students at the Academy of the Pacific. The NSTA article listed there shows how students are using GPS enabled, sensor-equipped “Niu” that they cast into the Pacific ocean and then track as they float with ocean currents. In addition to GPS, the Nui have digital cameras and satellite senors.

Nui is the Hawaiian word for coconut, but it also stands for “Nature Imparts Understanding” at the school. I like it.
