A Whale of a Rollercoaster The use of technology is critical in studying Humpback whales.Students will explore the use of tagging technologies in the research being conducted in the Southern Ocean around Antarctica. Students will simulate this tagging data in the classroom and will need to analyze, model, and interpret their data.*This lesson was written for a sensor app that is no longer available.
