Ocean Zones and Shark Weeks
Explore the exciting world of life underwater in Ocean Zones and Shark weeks. In this S.T.E.A.M. class, students learn about the ocean with an emphasis on sharks as they create and build using Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Each week is a STEAM challenge, with students creating a "build their own" solution to the question/ problem posed. A variety of materials will be available for students to utilize in their creations. Some of the projects include: building/ creating your own shark and making a shark cage strong enough to protect an undersea diver. Additional projects include helping to answer questions like: How do sharks float? and How can we best help ocean life after an oil spill? Weekly projects:

  1. Layers/ Zones (build your own ocean layers/ zones
