  • Where can you find class assignments?
    • All class assignments will be in canvas.
    • When a student is absent, this is their go to source to find out what they missed in class.
    • If an assignment cannot be completed at home, they will have the number of days that they were absent to make up the assignment once they return to campus (example: labs, quizzes, test etc)


  • What is Aquatic Science?
    • Aquatic Science is a challenging course designed to utilize the understanding of animals in the ocean and how humans impact those animals.
    • Throughout the course, we will explore different groups of animals.
    • For each of these groups of animals, we will discover where they live, what they eat, their characteristics, how they reproduce and how they interact with each other.
    • Animals Discussed:
        • Marine invertebrates such as octopus, sea star, squid etc)
        • Marine Reptiles (crocodiles, sea turtles, sea snakes and Marine iguanas)
        • Marine Fish, Sharks and Sting Rays
        • Marine Birds (penguins, sea gulls, etc)
        • Marine Mammals (whales, dolphins, polar bears, sea otters, sea lions etc)
    • Once we learn about each group of animals, we will also learn how human impact the animals both positively and negatively.
    • In addition to learning about animals in the ocean, we will also investigate such things as hurricanes, ocean ecosystems, scuba diving, climate impact on the ocean titanic and pollution.
