Labs
ISB Experimental and Role Play Teaching Module
In this curriculum module, students in high school life and marine science courses act as interdisciplinary scientists and delegates to investigate how the changing carbon cycle will affect the oceans along with their integral populations.

OCB Ocean Acidification Lab kit

Hands-on lab exercises for students in grades 6-12 that help introduce ocean acidification. Linked to U.S. national science teaching standards. Developed by S. Cooley, OCB.



C-MORE Ocean Acidification Teaching Module
Lessons, lab activities, and background material for students in grades 6-12.  Tied to Hawaii teaching standards. One of 8 science kits developed by the C-MORE education team for loan to teachers.

Acid Ocean Virtual Lab
An interactive computer-based introduction to ocean acidification, complete with a virtual lab investigating the effects of OA on sea urchin larval growth. Developed through University of Gothenburg and Stanford University's Inquiry to Insight Program by Jason Hodin, Pam Miller, and Geraldine Fauville (for complete list of credits, please visit site).
