    chart to track hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean.

    Hurricanes are large, swirling storms that are prominent in the Southeast United States.  SECOORA created a handy online glossary that helps students learn the most common scientific words heard in reference to hurricanes.


    Surge of the Storm

    A storm surge is a mound of ocean water that moves ashore with a hurricane.  It is caused by high winds of a hurricane pushing on the ocean’s surface and the low pressure at the hurricane’s center.  The Surge of the Storm education resource is a Grades 5-12 classroom activity which poses the question, “How does the storm surge of a hurricane affect the low-lying areas along the coast?” It includes web references and related material.

    The Dream Big Educator Guide is a companion resource to the film. It includes multidisciplinary activities for students in grades K–12 and has been written to meet Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), as well as common state science objectives. Each lesson presents students with an engineering challenge inspired by the work of real engineers and can be used to help introduce the engineering mindset to the classroom or your home.
