Measuring sea level

What does this gizmo do?

We’ve given students a diagram of what the interior of this mechanism contains and asked them to try to decide what its purpose must be.

Then we’ve given them the data that was collected from this place and others globally and asked what they can conclude.

A little mechanical and mathematical investigation + global awareness.
