  5. Fish Kills in Hood Canal – Designed for middle school students who are invited to investigate the phenomena of fish kills in Hood Canal (Puget Sound), integrating ideas from biology, chemistry, and physics in a marine context. A five part module that concludes with developing a conceptual model of why fish kills occur.
  6. Local Insights: Climate Change in Small-Town Alaska – Videos on ecosystems/food webs, salmon, and oceanography/glaciers, for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classrooms. Local footage and local voices are used in the videos to encourage students to see the science of climate change from a different perspective and to realize that it does affect their lives outside the classroom.
