Red Tide and Harmful Algal Blooms 09.20.2011    

Researchers at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Florida
Marine Research Institute (FMRI) are on the edge of scientific discovery. They
are working to discover the mysteries of Karenia brevis (K. brevis), the
dinoflagellate responsible for many of Florida’s red tides.

Students will be able to do the following:

  • Identify and describe an organism that causes Red Tide
  • Name three diseases caused by harmful algal blooms (HABs)
  • Describe the ecological implications of HABs

Videos on common science misconceptions presented by middle school science teachers 07.05.2011    

Six pre-service middle school science teachers participated in COSEE Florida's Research Experience Pre-service Teachers (REPT) program. For six weeks, REPT interns conducted a variety of experiments alongside research scientists at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, Ocean Research & Conservation Association, and the Smithsonian Marine Station at Fort Pierce. As part of their research experience, they produced short videos addressing common misconceptions in science, including such topics as:
- Scientists are boring lab rats
- Science does not involve creativity
- Science experiments answer questions in clear, concrete ways
