This 5-week long program for students age 9-14 takes an in-depth look at the scientific method and practices applying it to real hands-on marine science field research. Students and staff meet once per week and work cooperatively in a team to use scientific equipment and interact with live animals. They will learn the process of the scientific method, while applying it to take wrackline data while exploring the marsh and beach at Pescadero State Beach. They will also take fish population data from species they catch in the San Francisco Bay aboard a voyage on the R/V Robert G. Brownlee. Students will use this data to formulate graphs in an effort to identify any potential trends. They will gain experience in presenting as they share their final graphs with their peers. Classes begin February 10 so join Marine Science Institute and register today!: https://www.sfbaymsi.org/advanced-ecology.
