This course is designed to give students a better understanding of the world ocean. Through hands on labs that can be easily done at home, to analyzing real world data students will take an interactive approach to online oceanography.
Using inquiry based labs; student will explore and gain an understanding of ocean chemistry, dynamics, and geologic features.
Experimental design, graphing techniques and science based math will be applied in the various lessons.
Students can expect at least 1 hour of homework per week, including readings, graphing, labs, and questions.
NOTE: Registration deadline is September 15, 2021.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
So, that's where they live!!!
After taking the Dig Deep Marine Biology course, my daughter wanted to take more ocean related classes.. She was so thrilled to find out she could take Big Blue with Mrs. Pope. Mrs. Pope continued to do a wonderful job providing hands on projects that expanded her knowledge and love more marine biology life. If you have a child who is interested in how the ocean works or wants to get into a marine field, this class is great to take!
