To celebrate British Science Week 2021 Marine Scotland has produced some new videos to put the spotlight on the importance of our seas, oceans and freshwaters. So join us to learn more about the seas and climate change and to find out what it’s like working in the lab. These talks are suitable for Secondary 2 to 6 pupils.
The programme includes:
- Motion of the Ocean – Bee Berx Marine Scotland Science Climate Change Lead
The role of the ocean and changes within it to our climate
- Diagnosing bacterial disease in fish and shellfish – Alison Garden Senior Microbiologist
- Marine Scotland Science – A short video about Marine Scotland’s science arm
- Sounds from the deep – Renewables Science Science Advice Leader Ewan Edwards
We’ll also be highlighting some of our online resources throughout the week, including the Scotland’s Marine Assessment 2020 portal which provides an up to date view on the health of Scotland’s seas.
Read our Topic Sheets which include subjects ranging from aquaculture to marine mammals and many more.
