From Utah to Antarctica: polar research, nematodes and tardigrades in the classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Microfauna such as nematodes, rotifers and tardigrades provide an exciting way to engage students in life science topics ranging from cellular biology to ecology. These animals have fascinating adaptations that allow them to live nearly everywhere, even in hostile environments like Antarctica. Learn about how these animals are studied in Antarctica and how they can be studied in the classroom. The presentation will include information on several classroom activities (e.g. inquiry-lab, dichotomous key, ecological sampling, data analysis). NGSS: HS-LS2-2, HS-LS4-5, Utah Biology Core: Standards 1.3, 5.3; ILOs 1, 4, 6.
