Abstract

This paper presents a case for using Data Visualization Tools (DVT's) to manage and interact with massive sets of environmental data. Thus facilitating scientific inquiry as called for in The National Science Education Standards. The focus of this presentation will be on applications for grades 4-14. Two categories of DVT's will be demonstrated: (1) sites that provide simulation of scientific equipment and resources and (2) sites that allow students to interact with large educationally relevant databases
