Marine Invaders: Green crabs and other local invasive species
Professional learning workshop for informal and formal educators Grades 6-12
December 3, 2021
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Join us to learn the basics of invasive species, discover the marine invaders we find on Cape Cod, dive into green crab genetics (real life examples of some middle school genetics concepts), and explore how climate change and invasive species intersect. We’ll then get some applied, regional context when we discuss the impacts of invasive species on an aquaculture farm on Martha’s Vineyard. Take home background material and classroom activities.
