The Algal Turf Scrubber (ATS) is one of the marine ecology field’s best-kept secrets.
Take a tour of a tiny coral polyp to learn how they transform seawater and algae into the raw materials that make up a reef.
How does the finite amount of carbon on this planet move around in the environment, from one place to another?
By building an edible coral polyp, students will learn the anatomy of coral and be able to explain why corals are animals, rather than plants.
In this activity, students participate in a kinesthetic simulation to illustrate how nutrient pollution from agricultural runoff can lead to a dead zone at the mouth of a drainage basin.
In this activity, students will learn the parts of algae, compare them to land plants, and rotate through exploration stations to investigate seaweed close up with their different senses.
Earth’s changing temperatures are affecting animals on land, but they are also affecting other areas. Dive into the marine world with us to explore the effects of rising temperature and ocean acidification on algae.
