VSC’s Plankton Lab imparts an understanding of the many vital aspects of plankton. Virtual Sea Camp students learn about the three types of plankton; zooplankton, phytoplankton and dinoflagellates as well as the two sub categories. The lecture portion also teaches about the life cycle, limiting factors, place in the food chain as well as the importance plankton plays in the marine environment and the world.
Students embark with VSC marine scientists on one of our research vessels to discover what they can find in the plankton tows. Hypotheses are made while students walk through the steps of the scientific method (see full description and curriculum standards).
