Meet the Scientist – Prof Louise Allcock
WEBINAR SERIES FOR 4TH 5TH & 6TH CLASS
Wednesday 15th November 2023
Prof Louise Allcock
When we look at the sea, all we see is the surface, but underneath it is teeming with life. Marine Scientists try to understand all aspects of the ocean including its physical characteristics (tides, currents, chemistry, temperature) and its biology – the animals, plants and microbes that live there. Louise studies the diverse animals that live in the deeper parts of the ocean. In this talk, she will describe some of those animals and explain how important the deep oceans are to us as humans.
Meet the Scientist’ is part of the START initiative – a national competition challenging primary schools to create their very own randomised control trial. START is recognised by teachers as a ‘unique teaching tool’ allowing children to collaborate and enjoy a structured problem solving approach.
