Hiding in the Light TTE
Date: 07/27/11 - 07/30/11
Location: University of Connecticut - Avery Point

This Teacher Technology Experience (TTE) will focus on the optical properties of different habitats where fish and cephalopods camouflage, such as seagrass and seaweeds, and the biological response of vertebrate and invertebrate animals to the dynamic optical marine environment. Three teachers and one informal educator will interact with the lead scientist and graduate students to learn more about the properties of light in water, use of ocean optics instrumentation, participate in laboratory and field research, analyze imagery and work to develop lesson plans that link relative ocean science themes with K-12 curriculum standards.
