L3ESSC Field trip to University of Auckland, Goat Island Marine Lab and Marine Discovery Centre

On 16 August, the L3 Earth and Space Science learners travelled to the Goat Island Marine Discovery Centre to learn about the impacts of climate change on the ocean environment and ocean acidification. Learners experienced the University Teaching Laboratories and conducted a short investigation into the effect of increasing carbon dioxide on the chemistry of the ocean. Learners were also taught about the impact of warming oceans on species diversity, whilst getting to handle some of the sub-tropical species that are beginning to be found around our shores as the ocean warms.
