On Thursday we concluded our ocean acidification experiment! We had six groups count the number of brine shrimp that had hatched in one milliliter of both regular salt water and an acidic salt water and vinegar mix. Upon adding the totals, we saw that the lower pH negatively affects the hatching of brine shrimp.
As Week 3 drew to a close, the students continued to work at their scuba skills, and on Friday many were able to achieve Scuba Diver, Open Water, and Advanced Open Water certifications!
