Students will take an in-depth look at the scientific method and practice applying it to real hands-on field research. They will learn the process of the scientific method. They will collect animal population data from species they catch in the San Francisco Bay at the Marine Science Institute. Students will use this data to formulate graphs in an effort to identify any potential trends. They will gain experience in presenting as they share their final graphs with their peers. Students will work cooperatively in a team and interact with live animals. This program has multiple sessions that can be taken either as a series or independently. *This program requires a minimum number of students in order to operate.
