How does a scuba diver control whether they sink or float? Scholars observe the relationship between absolute pressure and depth below the surface in an undersea simulation. They control the diver size and depth to center of mass to see...
Learners explore the science and sport of scuba diving. In this scuba diving lesson, students build Cartesian divers and observe their behavior under water pressure.
High schoolers discover that scuba diving is more than a sport. It's a science that operationally integrates physics, chemistry, physiology, and oceanography. They perform a simple experiment which simulates the air tanks used in scuba...
Students plan a scuba diving trip to Belize. In this planning a scuba diving trip to Belize lesson, students research about the barrier reef in Belize. Students make travel plans that involve finding distance, time, and cost of...
Introduce gas laws using the popular topic of SCUBA diving. This activity makes a connection between the gas laws and the effect of pressure and temperature changes during diving. Young engineers complete introductory experiments to...
Pupils interview a guest scuba diver or study electronic resources to discover facts about scuba diving. They investigate the physics of scuba diving, the gaseous components of air, equipment used, and safety precautions taken by divers....
Students explain various scientific laws used in SCUBA diving. In this theory based lesson, students examine and explain how temperature, density, and salinity relate to SCUBA diving using various scientific laws to engage their learning.
Dive into this resource on rates of change and linear models. Pupils use two sliders in an interactive to adjust water temperature and depth. They use a given linear equation to calculate the rate of change in water temperature per unit...
Children research plant and animal components of marine ecosystem, visualize undersea life, and picture themselves wearing scuba-diving equipment needed to explore underwater. Students then create underwater scene in which they explore...
Students define several laws of pressure and see how they relate to scuba diving. In this ocean explorer instructional activity students answer questions and complete an activity.
Aquarium of the Pacific
A short video shows how a scuba divers' equipment relates to major parts of a fish. Learners draw two fish and identify what aspects are the same and which are different. The scholars then draw a scuba diver, making sure they provide all...
Swimmers know to float by turning their bodies horizontally rather than vertically, but why does that make a difference? In an interesting instructional activity, scholars explore buoyancy and the properties of air and water. They test...
Students research to answer questions related to deep sea diving. In this deep sea diving lesson, students answer questions on a worksheet using the Internet. They discuss pressure, gas laws, and the physiology of diving in the deep sea.
Students explore geography by conducting an in-class experiment. In this deep sea exploration lesson, students identify the different zones of the ocean and utilize water bottles, masking tape and scissors to conduct a water pressure...
Amaze your scholars with an activity that uses a Cartesian diver to demonstrate Pascal's Law, Archimedes' Principle, and the Ideal Gas Law. Groups then repeat the process and make their own diver move up and down in a bottle.
Learners research dive sites on an underwater nature trail that would introduce divers to the wonders of the reef surrounding South Caicos. They then recreate each dive site using shoe box diorama and create an information station at...
Museum of Disability History
It's truly amazing how people with physical disabilities are able to find ways to overcome their impairments. Their tremendous perseverance is evident in this handout that describes the ways different sports, ranging from bowling...
Students are exposed to the physics and physiology of scuba diving, study the principals applied in the U.S. Navy Decompression tables and work out typical decompression problems.
Will your next buoyancy lab rise to the occasion? Make a splash with action figure divers! Teams of young physicists explore the relationship between mass and buoyancy by adding weights or balloons to achieve a diver that neither sinks...
Virginia Department of Education
At some point, everyone has been under pressure—even Dalton! Explore Dalton's law of partial pressures with young chemists as they measure the volume of air extracted from a sample compared to its original volume. Class members perform...
In this swim bladders instructional activity, students use a bowl, water, and balloons to make swim bladders, and answer short answer questions about them. Students answer 7 questions and interview someone who has been scuba diving.
