Have you ever wondered about how interactions between organisms can greatly impact our environment? For example, how removing an ecosystem's top predator can greatly impact the rest of the food chain. Or how natural disasters such as fires, pollution, and landslides can have severe impacts on an entire ecosystem of organisms and wildlife. Or how the presence of one organism can alter the behavior of another. In this class, students will be introduced to the dynamics of environmental food...
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.
Students will receive articles relating to the concept that is studied each week in class. They will also be asked each week to relate some of the topics that we are studying to the environment around them. Students will have the option of sharing what they have discovered about their own environments in the week that follows if they feel comfortable doing so.
There are no required materials to purchase. Links to websites and class material will be provided by teacher.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
