The Heat is On!: Climate Change and Coral Reef Ecosystems
During this half-day Symposium, experts and educators from NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation
Program and Coral Reef watch gave an overview of the biology of coral and coral
reefs and showed the participants how satellite data is used to understand and predict
coral bleaching events and ocean acidification. The participants engaged in hands-on
experiments which illustrated the effects of ocean acidification and helped learners
understand the structure and biology of a coral polyp.
This symposium was held at the NSTA National Conference on Science Education in
New Orleans, LA. The program was designed for teachers 5-12.
