In this assignment students will choose a Gulf coast marine species to research and make inferences about. The idea behind this project is for students to gain knowledge about local issues arising in the ocean that can impact the entire ecosystem. The assignment includes a descriptor, the research questions, and a list of real Gulf coast marine species that are either endangered or could be in the near future. The list includes a visual and one selected video from YouTube to help the students pick something of interest. The students then pick a technology application to create a product that shares out the information.
