Mission Bay Science Teachers Explore Ocean with Scripps Team

Mission Bay High teachers Steve Walters and Bob Caligiuri are exploring the Santa Barbara Basin aboard the Scripps Institute of Oceanography research vessel the Melville next week. The teachers will be joining the Cal-Echoes team as they examine California's ecological changes and historical origins from Sept. 25 to Oct. 3. Core sampling, acoustic readings, identification of phytoplankton, zooplankton, DNA of fish and squid are just a few examples of the research being done. Videos, data, lesson plans and questions to scientist can be found at the Cal-Echoes web site. For more information, contact Vice Principal James Michaelian at .
