Fernbank Science Center Distributes Atlanta Geological Society Award - The Atlanta Geological Society has awarded a Norman Sandford Pottinger Earth Science Education Mini-Grant to Fernbank Science Center. The $230 Mini-Grant is to buy The Theory of Plate Tectonics, a graphics animation CD by Tasa Graphic Arts, for fifth-grade use at five DeKalb County schools. The schools, selected on a first-requested, first-served basis, are Kittredge Magnet, Murphey Candler, Narvie Harris, Rock Chapel, and Sagamore Elementary Schools. Students will be able to trace 600 million years of movement of continents on a world map, and analyze how plate tectonic movements have formed mountain ranges and ocean basins.
Although Dennis Tasa’s animations are of especially high quality, teachers should be aware of other animations that can be downloaded for free, such as those by Tanya Atwater at http://emvc.geol.ucsb.edu
