Textbook is required (same textbook as Fall Semester). Contact programmanager@sfbaymsi.org if you need information about textbook. Students interact with and learn about the animals that live in the San Francisco Bay Estuary and local Pacific Ocean habitats. They have the opportunity to use real scientific equipment and handle live animals. Students will work on a final project all semester. There will be weekly homework assignments.
