Advancing Technology: Discovering the Ocean one Plankton at a Time
Help me give my students new age technology at their fingertips. These wireless microscopes can link to their phones, tablets and give us a clearer and larger field of view when identifying specimens like plankton.
Living on the Gulf Coast, my students are eager to learn about the marine world and all it offers them. Most of them were born and raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast; however, they know little about all of its resources. Many are debating a career in the marine biology and are looking to pursue higher education in the marine field.
I have successful and enthusiastic students that are looking to further their skill sets for college and everyday life while keeping up with the advancing technology world.
Living in a marine rich environment is great for learning about marine science; however, it can become cumbersome if you have out dated tools to do so. Technology is advancing everyday. My goal is to help progress my students with the advancing technology.
The majority of my students are upperclass men who are prepping for higher education.
These wireless microscopes will allow them access to technology closer to what they would be using in college or an actual lab. Not to mention, they are portable and can be used when we are in the field! This makes identifying plankton more successful!
