Marine Science Camp: I’ll ‘Crush’ You
Today Marine and Environmental Science Campers learned about the structure of crab claws and how they crush animals that live inside of seashells! They tested the strength of various sea shells to see how the shells will hold up against predators such as snow crabs!
Campers also learned about the effects of fertilizers on the Indian River Lagoon! They tested hypotheses to see if quick or slow release fertilizers would have higher nutrient concentrations!
