On March 5, 2019 high school science teachers participated in a one day workshop to learn the chemistry behind climate science and ocean acidification. UW School of Oceanography scientists lead the workshop. Modules included an overview of the chemistry behind climate change, a primer on chemistry as it relates to understanding ocean acidification, and a lab to construct a spectrophotometric device that mimics the technology used to collect pH data from buoys deployed off the coast of Washington.
