An Introduction to Phytoplankton and Harmful Algal Blooms — SAMS

An Introduction to Phytoplankton and Harmful Algal Blooms — SAMS | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

This course will introduce you to the primary phytoplankton in the water, along with those which give cause for concern.  We’ll share how you can use that information to monitor your water, gauge when to harvest, and spot certain environmental factors that may lead to harmful algal blooms.

Delivered by leading algae scientists from SAMS (the Scottish Association for Marine Science), this course is a practical introduction from the specialist team that analyses water collected from the shellfish growing areas around Scotland for the Food Standards Agency (FSA).  Be prepared for practical laboratory sessions (and a few Latin names), as we want to ensure you have plenty of practical experience and leave knowing what to look for and how to look for it.

Virtual Marine Scientist - Institutionen för pedagogik, kommunikation och lärande, IPKL, University of Gothenburg, Sweden | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Do you want your secondary school students to understand how science really works in the lab and how research is carried out? Do you want them to investigate and learn about pressing marine environmental issues? In that case, Virtual Marine Scientist (VMS) is what you need!


The Virtual Marine Scientist project aims to familiarise students (16‐19 years) with the concrete conditions in which scientists work and research is carried out. In this virtual environment, students discover how to design and run experiments in environmental science. Virtual Marine Scientist offers a stimulating context in which to learn about experimental work, including elements of cooperation and problem solving.

John Bostock's insight:

This looks to be a very useful project ... get in touch and give it a try if you are teaching marine science to the target age group.
