Science Odyssey: Pacific NW Marine Invertebrates
May 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
In this virtual presentation we will provide a brief overview of marine invertebrates – a group of organisms that often receive poor public opinion despite the fact that they are major contributors to global biodiversity and marine ecosystem function. You will hear from 5 unique marine science centres located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia about how you can bring marine invertebrates to your classroom (Seaquaria), virtual learning of marine invertebrates (Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre), field trips to the only aquarium dedicated to marine invertebrates of the Salish Sea (Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea), how marine invertebrates have impacted BC’s nautical culture and heritage (Maritime Museum), and how you can access data on marine invertebrates from your own desktop (Ocean Networks Canada). This presentation is ideal for students in grades 6-11.
Science Odyssey is a national campaign that celebrates Canadian achievements in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Every year in May, hundreds of science outreach leaders deliver fun, engaging and inspiring activities to Canadians of all ages.
