Models, Food Webs and a Warming Gulf of Maine

How do scientists use models to understand what is happening in an ecosystem? How is the marine food web changing as a result of warming ocean waters in the Gulf of Maine? This curriculum from the Gulf of Maine Research Institute asks students to explore some of the potential impacts and consequences that climate change, and specifically warming oceans, will have on marine ecosystems. As the answers to these questions are not fully understood, this curriculum has students using scientific modeling and data analysis to explore ideas, connections, and potential outcomes of a changing climate.
This hands-on workshop hosted at the Seacoast Science Center in New Hampshire will help prepare educators to use tools and activities from the Models, Food Webs and a Warming Gulf of Maine curriclum module in their settings. Come look at data, engage in a modeling game and explore emerging research about changes in the Gulf of Maine.

A light dinner and mileage reimbursement will be provided along with a certificate for 2.5 contact hours. A $50 stipend is available for classroom teachers participating in the workshop.

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute pioneers collaborative solutions to global ocean challenges. Located in Portland, Maine, GMRI is dedicated to the resilience of the Gulf of Maine ecosystem and the communities that depend on it.
