Emriver Em3 Stream Table Proves an Effective Teaching Tool at Illinois High School

We’re happy to see Hinsdale Central High School make the news recently, talking about how effective their new Em3 is for teaching Earth Science. I think two students summed up the model’s benefits perfectly:
“Sophomore Will Goebel said using the interactive river table is more fun than “looking at boring textbooks and pictures.”

“Even if we learned it in the book, we understand it better this way,” said Alek Malone, a Hinsdale freshman.”
You can also see an example of the Em3 in action at a class hosted at Little River’s lab in Carbondale, IL.
