Check the Home Tab to review some of the things ocean engineers do.
Review Materials: Week 1 through 9 Start at week 3 and review ocean videos. In class this week we'll need to know the answers to questions like this...... 1. When viewing the information from the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, the author of the blog expressed things we don’t know about the deep sea. Name two. (week 6) 2. Think about the atoll, Kure and Jean Costeau. Why is this important to our study? (Look in the Discover tab - Trash on the Spin Cycle) 3. What were the Jason Argonauts on the Nautilus doing in Turkey? (week 4) 4. Why is the ocean blue? (week 6) 5. When Dr. Gary Lopez made the video for GATE students, what one thing did he say everyone on earth had in common? (Look in the Discover tab - Ocean Awareness)
Science Fair If you're doing a science fair project, consider using some of your understandings about the ocean. Light, density, sound, salinity, pressure, currents, swirls in nature, oil spills, trash, plastics, waves, tides, submersibles, fish tank physics, buoyancy, temperature, climate, bioluminescence, technology, satellites, etc......wow......sounds wonderful!! http://www.oesd.noaa.gov/outreach/scifair.html
Week 5 Review and complete the following: http://www.pbs.org/kqed/oceanadventures/episodes/ kure/ about.html All creature illustrations and writing. Decide on an area of ocean study you favor. Prepare a driving question you have about your area of interest. Look back at the Home Page, and try to understand how your question fits into the study of Ocean Engineering. Write your question and bring it to the next class.
Week 4 Live Q&A with JASON Project Argonauts Tuesday, August 28 @ 1:30pm Eastern (10:30am Reno Area) JASON Student and Educator Argonauts answer your questions about living and exploring aboard E/V Nautilus during this webcast live from the ship, which is currently stationed off the coast of Turkey in the Mediterranean Sea. Argonauts participating in the webcast will include Fredy Corrales, Dennis Durkin, Allison Eggert, Sheena Guevara, Roshan Pathre, and Tiberiu Puican.
Connect with the Argonauts on Tuesday, August 28 at 1:30pm Eastern (10:30 am Reno Area) at http://www.nautiluslive.org/ to watch the event and send in your questions!
Watch 24/7 Live Coverage of the 2012 Nautilus Expedition through September 4.
The 2012 expedition will continue off the coast of Turkey through September 4. Visit the Nautilus Live website to watch live video and audio feeds transmitted from the ship 24/7 throughout the expedition. Send a question to the Corps of Exploration during operations, and browse highlight videos, blogs, and photos. Check out the "Highlights", "Kids", "Latest", or other tabs of interest. Scan recent photos of Eratosthenes, seen from the International Space Station!
Week 3 This week we learned how long it takes for trash to deteriorate. When we throw something “away”…..we learned that there is no “away”. Here are some approximate times items take to deteriorate in the ocean.
Glass bottle = undetermined Fishing line = 600 years Plastic beverage bottle = 450 years Aluminum can = 200 years Styrofoam cup = 50 years Cigarette filter = 1-5 years Milk carton = 3 months Banana peel = 2-6 weeks
Week 2 Draw a real or created ocean creature. Use your imagination! Write one page of information telling about your creature. Does it have fur? See in the dark? Eat noodles? Mention the habitat, diet, color, features, etc. I can't wait to get a glimpse of your creature!
Week 1 Please continue to bring pictures of ocean exploration for our current study. Any pictures of submarines, submersibles, fish, ocean trash, or any other photos of ocean interest.
