1.8 地震警報 Earthquake Alert

STEM lessons + blocks

SAM Labs

Product Description

Students will gain understanding of how technology can be used to reduce the impact of a weather-related hazard.

  • Students will integrate and exhibit learning by designing a SAM Earthquake Alert that will warn people when an earthquake is starting
.

在本課程中,學生將了解如何使用技術來減少與天氣有關的危害的影響。

學生將通過設計SAM地震警報來整合和展示學習,該地震警報將在地震開始時警告人們。
