What's Included

Sometimes it is the little things that count... like Plankton! Spend the morning learning about, collecting, and viewing live plankton! Participants will enjoy a short presentation, deploy a plankton net to gather a concentrated sample of plankton from our dock, and take a closer look on our 10' projector screen in the Marine Science Center at these amazing creatures where they will discuss what types of organisms plankton are and how important plankton is to the food web in the San Francisco Bay. The day is finished off with a take home craft.

About This Organizer

The Marine Science Institute was founded in 1970, around the time that the issue of water resources was becoming a major concern for many Bay Area inhabitants. The Institute's philosophy was founded on the idea that putting students in direct physical contact with their local bay environment will help cultivate their natural sense of curiosity while enriching their understanding of science and fostering a responsibility to protect their environment.

 

Marine Science Institute’s mission is to inspire respect and stewardship for the marine environment through experiential learning. We are dedicated to providing fun, safe, and exciting learning opportunities for budding biologists of all ages.
