Come explore how undergraduate students and teachers can travel the world-either physically or virtually-to carry out real-world research on some of the world's most troubling environmental issues in order to learn the importance of global environmental sustainability. A case study of the Penn State CHANCE program's work in China will be presented showcasing the use of technology to transform an embedded field course, virtual online "research modules," and a traditional science classroom. Witness how online innovation can bring global, real-world scientists and their research data into Chinese classrooms to mobilize students to think about societal and environmental challenges.
