This course is about all the incredible animals that live in the ocean and how they survive such extreme environments! In this course, students will be exploring the incredible and amazing animals in the midnight, twilight and photic zones of the ocean while also learning about how they interact with their environment. Students will work through digital simulations to solve problems, create unique ocean creatures that can survive under certain environmental pressures, watch exciting footage of these organisms, learn/share wild facts and even discuss the lore behind some of them (i.e. the Kracken! ah!).
If you are someone who loves learning about new animals, enjoys hand-on activities, or likes to creatively problem solve then you do not want to miss this class! Any background knowledge is welcome! Whether you know a lot or very little about the deep blue, you will be able to dive deep into areas of interests as well as lots new areas of knowledge. Looking forward to exploring with you! Space is limited!
