Experience Snapshot:
Students will engage in a multi-part inquiry-based project that relates to the phenomenon of electromagnetic (EM) energy, both of the Earth and of living organisms. Students will determine how sharks’ organs and human-created instrumentation can detect electromagnetic energy. They will consider the driving question, “How does electromagnetism play a role in how sharks and humans interact and how does this interaction affect their relationship and ecology?”
