Professor brings the coast to students with ‘beach wave tank’
GLEN ELLYN – Thanks to the efforts of Assistant Professor Diana Strode, College of DuPage students in her introductory oceanography course can travel to the coast without leaving their Midwestern classroom.
Using a 4-by-7.5-foot Plexiglas tank she designed, Strode demonstrates the effects of wave conditions on sand formations and gives students the opportunity for hands-on learning.
“It benefits students who have never had the opportunity to be on a beach or be on a riverbank to see what’s going on,” Strode said.
