Join us on March 13th for LiveStream at Olympic National Park at 1 pm ET.
Students will engage in a series of hands-on activities and an engineering challenge related to the marine ecosystem of Ruby Beach in Olympic National Park. This will include a virtual component, where they will observe the diverse tidepools. The physical activities will be conducted in a controlled outdoor or laboratory setting, simulating the conditions of Ruby Beach.
Call to Action:
Students will engage in hands-on activities to understand the dynamic nature of tidepools and the importance of cultural heritage in environmental stewardship.
Activities or Engineering Design Challenges:
Engineering Design Challenge - 'Tidepool Protector': Students will design and build a model structure that protects tidepool habitats from environmental threats like pollution or human interference, using sustainable materials. Students may also present ways to protect our tidepools from microplastics, climate action, predators; human and animal.
Reflective Journaling: Document the design process, challenges faced, and solutions found in the engineering challenge.
Group Discussion and Feedback: Share experiences from the tidepool simulation and species study, discussing the importance of biodiversity and cultural heritage.
Final Presentation: Present the 'Tidepool Protector' models, explaining the design choices and how they would effectively protect real tidepools.
I CAN STATEMENTS ABOUT TIDEPOOLS:
