OCEAN ACIDIFICATION KIT ACTIVITIES: The Ocean Acidification Educator Kit provides a number of activities to teach about this important topic with your students. We partnered with the SMILE program on an ocean acidification WEBINAR and these are the activities that were highlighted.
WATER QUALITY AND MACROINVERTEBRATE TUTORIAL VIDEOS These short videos show educators how to teach students how to test water quality or collect macroinvertebrates using field sampling equipment. The kits featured in these videos are two of several that educators can checkout through the StreamWebs program.
VERNIER TUTORIAL VIDEOS:
Here you will find a number of video tutorials covering field protocols for using the Vernier LabQuest and water quality sensors in the field, in addition to a field tutorial for conducting photo point monitoring.
