EARTH (Education and Research: Testing Hypotheses) is a curriculum and workshop series developed in collaboration between MBARI and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. EARTH lays new groundwork, providing educators with a means for integrating real-time data with existing educational standards and tested curriculum in an interactive and engaging way.
At our annual EARTH Workshops educators work directly with scientists and engineers to understand and integrate their data sets into the lessons they develop. The majority of EARTH educators are middle and high school teachers, but we welcome kindergarten through college educators in both formal and informal settings, as well as undergraduate and graduate students.

EARTH Lesson Plan
Students will explore the use of tagging technologies in the research being conducted in the Southern Ocean around Antarctica.
Students will utilize a guided WebQuest to research the possible future effects of ocean acidification, explore current models used to predict the changes in the ocean’s pH and discuss the current data collection for research.
Students will be analyzing real-time data from the East Coast (SECOORA) and West Coast (NANOOS) to compare the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
