Oceanography-- It's Not Just Whales, Icebergs, Sharks, Volcanoes & Rubber Ducks
Karen Fisher Favret the FractalMom
Come and learn how open ocean temperatures connect to marine life, climate change and pollution and what STEM can do about it
Welcome to Oceanography 101. It's Really Not Just Whales, Icebergs, Sharks, Coral Reefs, Volcanos and Rubber Ducks... we will learn about those too, but there is much more! This course will use experiments and discussions to explore the oceans. The students will learn a bit about each of the basic concepts of oceanography that graduate students in oceanography learn: how the heat from the sun drives the winds that form the major ocean currents, what chemical properties it has, how the...
FractalMom is an oceanographer-turned-biodiversity-scientist with two curious children who help her investigate the world. My goal is to get the next generation of Citizen Scientists out there working to understand our world, sharing their discoveries and inventions, and using scientific reasoning to make sense of their own observations.
0Week 1 jars, water, ice, salt, food coloring drops for making water layers; thermohaline demo Week 2 pennies and eye dropper, jar, index card, kleenex, cheesecloth: water droplets, spills and ripples, download iNaturalist to document species you see Week 3 remote sensing and download SpectrumView for the sounds you hear Week 4 collect "tiny trash" surface currents and pollution, buoyancy and rubber duckies
In this class, learners will be asked to experiment with water, document their world (digital pictures and recording sounds), and think about how they can invent something to help mitigate human impacts on the earth system.
