November 5, 2013 -- Last week we had an unusual request...to teach 100 seventh graders in pajamas about science! Deep-C joined up with the Florida Climate Center to put together 8 activities about weather and the ocean for Fairview Middle School's annual 7th grade sleepover. Our team of awesome scientists and Florida State students spent their Friday night demonstrating a floodplain, building a hydrometer, getting up close and personal with deep sea creatures, making weather instruments, and much more!
|Building a 7 layer density model.|
|Assistant State Climatologist Melissa Griffin demonstrates the properties of a floodplain.|
|Dr. Lydia Stefanova from the Center from Oceanic and Atmospheric Prediction Studies(COAPS) exploring the properties of air with a "wind bag".|
|Students test out their home made anemometers.|
|Students made hydrometers and then tested salt water vs. fresh water|
|Trying to entangle the web of life!|
|Demonstrating how different liquids have different densities. Pretty cool!|
