An Oceanographer's Look at Popular Ocean Myths
Do we really know more about the surface of the Moon than the World Ocean? I'll share some myths about the big blue and give it up to a vote - you'll decide if they're true or not.
We will discuss the science behind the myths and see how many you get right!
The idea with this presentation is that I will first hold a question with a given myth or misconception, then the students can vote on the answer and discuss with me and between each other, then I reveal what the modern oceanography and science perspective has to say about the given myth. The involvement is then in the voting (where the students will be able to tell how many voted on the specific options) and discussion.
This presentation will be held in English.
