Marine Science – Secrets of the Blue

Recommended Grade Level: 10 - 12

What is marine science and what role does it play in our daily life? In Marine Science Semester 1, you’ll explore the development of oceans and the role water plays in shaping our environment and climate. Learn about the oceanic and freshwater processes, changes in ecosystems, and the connection between water and weather. You will also learn about energy in the ocean, including the principles of fluid dynamics, the role of hydrostatic pressure, the law of conservation of energy, and the measurable properties of waves. Through the use of scientific inquiry, research, measurement, and problem solving, you will conduct various scientific procedures that will lead to an increased level of knowledge about Marine Science.

Have you ever wondered about the secrets of the deep, and how the creatures below the ocean’s surface live and thrive? In Marine Science 1b: Secrets of the Blue, you will further explore the aquatic cycles, structures, and processes that generate and sustain life in the sea. Learn about the importance of adaptation for survival and the role of natural selection in evolution. What populations survive and thrive in the ocean? You’ll also learn how humans interact with the environment, the role we play on marine systems and ecosystems, and recognize the scientific and ethical questions that arise during advanced experiments. You will also learn about the exciting career opportunities that exist in the world of Marine Science.
