Snack-Sized Science: Don't Be Salty

EarthEcho invites you to play along with us during “Snack-Sized Science”. These brief and interactive science demos with the EarthEcho team are meant to help your young-learners get excited to investigate the fascinating world of SCIENCE and hopefully explore more of EarthEcho’s digital resources...maybe even on their own! Join EarthEcho as we explore the water cycle and desalination. During this demonstration, you can follow along and set up your own backyard water cycle/desalination experiment. Learn how water moves on our planet and how to remove salt from saltwater to get fresh water!

Snack-Sized Science: Wading Into Water Quality!

EarthEcho invites you to play along with us during “Snack-Sized Science”. These brief and interactive science demos with the EarthEcho team are meant to help your young-learners get excited to investigate the fascinating world of SCIENCE and hopefully explore more of EarthEcho’s digital resources...maybe even on their own! Join EarthEcho as we explore water quality and why it is important to monitor the health of surface water bodies such as streams, rivers, and lakes. We will demonstrate how to monitor water with the EarthEcho Water Challenge test kit. Go further by submitting your results to EarthEcho’s Water Challenge at www.monitorwater.org.

Bio-Bloques Diseño STEM de Hábitat de Peces

Por décadas, las poblaciones mundiales han emigrado cada vez más hacia las regiones costeras. Esta colonización de la costa por parte de los seres humanos ha dado como resultado que grandes áreas de lo que antes eran litorales rocosos, marismas salobres y ciénagas se convirtieran en un entorno alterado y construido para las personas. Además, con el constante aumento del nivel del mar, se están implementando defensas costeras para proteger a los pueblos y ciudades del agua de los océanos. Estas defensas están reemplazando los hábitats naturales que juegan un papel vital en el ciclo de vida de los peces, incluyendo: lugares de desove, criaderos y fuentes de alimento planctónico. Lo cual a su vez está afectando las poblaciones de peces en los océanos. Durante la última expedición de EarthEcho, Pesca sostenible: Desafío entre redes el equipo se reunió con la Dra. Louise Firth, profesora de Ecología Marina en la Universidad de Plymouth. Su estudio investiga maneras en las que podemos hacer espacio para la naturaleza en entornos dominados por humanos. En esta lección, los estudiantes obtendrán un entendimiento básico de la idea de que los hábitats específicos son esenciales en el ciclo de vida de algunas especies. Los estudiantes trabajarán a través del proceso de diseño en la ingeniería para construir una solución tipo “bio-bloque” que produzca un rompeolas que sea al mismo tiempo más amigable con la naturaleza y que proteja la costa contra inundaciones.

What’s the Problem with Trawling?

Commercial trawling has a devastating effect on biodiversity in areas where it has been used. Large commercial trawlers have been historically decimating both marine environments and significantly decreasing stock levels to a level at which they are unable to recuperate. The impact on communities sitting on the seafloor, known as benthic communities is devastating, the primary culprit being drag trawlers with beams of up to 12 meters, and several beams often deployed at the same time. This lesson looks at the effect of commercial trawling on both fish stocks and benthic community biodiversity. Students will understand relative sizes and impacts of large-scale fishing operations, and devise a plan to reduce the impacts of trawling. Students perform percentage calculations and analyze graphs.
