Oceanography by Ms. Deidre Boodoo, Rasmussen College

September 1, 2015

Oceanography was the hands-on science topic of September's Science Saturday. It was presented by Ms. Deidre Boodoo of Rasmussen College. Students learned that ocean waves are formed by wind. In small groups, they were able to experiment with making waves. Students also learned about the depth zones of the ocean biome and various types of marine life that are found in the various zones. Volunteers from Vanguard, Forest, and Westport High Schools are assisting at Science Saturdays this academic year. The Fall 2015 Science Saturday season is made possible by the generosity of Ron and Phyllis Ewers and Lockheed Martin.
