Smithsonian Virtual Homeschool Day: Reefs Unleashed

Reefs Unleashed
During this staff-led program, students explore how Smithsonian scientists measure the biodiversity of coral reefs using nondestructive methods. They will model the same scientific processes used by our scientists by observing and analyzing images of plates with the actual organisms that live in the Autonomous Reef Monitoring Structures (ARMS) to better understand human impact on coral reefs. Based upon their observations students will develop, test, and refine explanations and potential recommendations for protecting and preserving coral reefs.

This program is designed for students in grades sixth through twelfth.

Format:
Homeschool Day Zoom Webinar-Designed to accommodate individual students or small groups with less than 15 students. Students will not be visible to the museum educator or other students, but will be able to submit questions in writing through the Q&A, and interact through polls.

Please contact us at nmnhschoolprograms@si.edu  with additional questions about programs or logistics.
