This lesson introduces students to the impacts of increasing ocean temperatures on marine life. Through this kinesthetic activity, students will learn more about marine ectotherms and what researchers in Antarctica have learned so far about how increasing temperature in Antarctic waters will affect their growth. Through the elaborate section of the activity students will connect what they learned about
I looked closer at the nudibranch. This is a Tritonia challengeriana...I can tell by the pompon looking tufts along the side of its body. I think it's producing an egg case. Yes, it is! I need to tell Aaron, Graham, and Amy! I am so excited that, finally, after mornings and afternoons spent observing
This archive is from a live event broadcast from McMurdo Station, Antarctica with "Team Amy" (Educator Amy Osborne and Researcher Amy Moran) on 22 November 2019. The research team discussed different aspects of their fieldwork investigating the effects of temperature on the metabolism, growth rate, developmental rate, and energetics of embryos and larvae of Antarctic marine ectotherms.
A poster by PolarTREC alum Dan Frost describing the integration of Arctic research into secondary education through a field season in Svalbard. It details possibilities for curriculum building and outreach through Arctic field work experience.
This one hour presentation by Dr. Al Werner is a professional development opportunity for educators to learn more about earth and geoscience research in Svalbard, Norway. Some noticeable technical issues are resolved a few minutes into the presentation.
