In this virtual class, we will break down the science behind red tide and phytoplankton. We will discuss environmental health in the area and identify local concerns that Mote is currently researching, such as pesticide impact on marine environments and local runoff pollution.
Key topics: Phytoplankton, Red tide, Bioaccumulation, Biomagnification, Water pollution, Urban runoff and the Water cycle.
Each class will offer an optional “Active Learning” component from 12 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. where participants will participate in hands-on learning activities related to the day’s topic.
