Includes hands-on opportunities and demonstrations in the wet lab and on the beach as weather and season permit. Students will examine available local seaweeds, looking at their different parts; life stages including basic reproductive strategies; as well as harvesting and uses by humans. Students will get to sample dried seaweed, as well as have opportunity to take part in a blindfolded taste test of products that incorporate seaweeds.
