Did you ever wonder what happens when our aquatic environments are not cared for? Take for instance an oil spill or run off from coastal pollution such as home septic systems or contamination from surrounding factories. Have you ever thought about what happens to the environment and the aquatic life living there? In the first 4 weeks of this course students will learn about the effects of pollution on our aquatic environments from factors such as manufacturing, development, human...
My entire life I wanted to explore the ocean and the environment. I have always had a great appreciation for the processes that are not completely understood and the unknowns that have yet to be discovered in the environment. In the beginning of my professional career in research, I worked as a naturalist on a whale watch boat and as a laboratory technician working on environmental clean up projects such as water and land pollution. Then I moved into my dream job of being a research chemist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in marine & geochemistry where I was able to be in the foundation of the research community and learn from many amazing scientists & researchers who devoted their life to exploring the mysteries of the environment as well as protecting the animals and organisms living in it. For me, working as a student mentor with graduate and post graduate students, made this experience one I will always cherish. As a teacher, I want my students to be excited about what they are learning and with my background in research, I will work extra hard to make sure that if there is an aspect of a topic that a student is interested in, I will make every effort to alter my lessons to include those topics.
Links to interactive worksheets and relevant websites will be provided by the instructor, no materials are required to purchase.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Just a quick note: The section that is scheduled to start on March 18th meets twice a week (Mondays & Wednesdays). This was to accomodate a parent's request. Every other section meets once a week.
