FREE - What is Ocean Acidification? with Helen Findlay

In this Live Lesson, learners will meet Helen Findlay and learn about ocean acidification, and how it can threaten ocean health.

We hear a lot about greenhouse gases, climate change, and melting glaciers, but what about ocean acidification? In this live lesson, Helen Findlay will guide students through the process. What is it and how is it caused? What animals will this affect and how will it impact the way we live our lives?

Live lesson outline

1. Introduction (5 mins)

The Live Lesson host welcomes students and outlines the lesson. There will also be shout-outs to any registered schools, so listen out for yours.

2. Presentation (20 mins)

The host will then introduce Helen Findlay, who will take students through a short presentation. Students are encouraged to take notes about things they do and especially do not understand, as this will make the Q&A section a richer learning experience, and allow any misconceptions to be cleared up.

3. Pre-submitted questions (10 mins)

At this point, the team will answer as many pre-submitted questions as possible.

4. Live questions answered (10 mins)

The remaining time will be spent answering as many questions from the Youtube live chat as possible.
