Marine Madness: July BioBox

An Exploration of Aquatic Beauty

With the breadth and depth of aquatic life, it’s no wonder that marine biologists dedicate their lives to uncovering its mysteries. Your students could be the marine biologists of the next generation, and this marine science BioBox could be the spark they need to begin their journey. These experiments range from the microscopic observation of plankton to the dissection of a squid. By the end, your students will have a mastery of some classic marine species.

This BioBox poses a few questions about some quintessential marine organisms:

  • What are diatoms?
  • What is the triop life cycle?
  • How does a sea star’s body help it survive?
  • Why do squid have siphons?
