Marine Biology

11th Grade - 32 Weeks

Join us for an exciting adventure exploring marine wildlife and their habitats. Students will become acquainted with microscopic organisms that make life in the ocean possible, including details about their interesting habits and life cycles. Dissections of larger organisms include clams, starfish, and sharks. We will explore how these creatures and their physical surroundings form marine ecosystems such as intertidal zones, estuaries, coral reefs, continental shelf, epipelagic, and deep-ocean communities. This course focuses on how these subjects apply to Florida whenever possible. 

This is a high school science with lab class so there are many experiments which will need to be properly written up as instructed in the syllabus for a complete Marine Biology with Lab credit. This adventure is designed for students that have already completed first year Biology.
