Teaching ocean acidification

Ocean acidification is a phenomenon that results from increasing anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions on land. As carbon dioxide is absorbed, a series of chemical reactions causes an increase in acidity. This leads to many detrimental effects on marine organisms reverberate up the food chain. One reason ocean acidification remains a grand challenge is because of how difficult it is to communicate to a general population. We prepared a lesson for a local APES class regarding ocean acidification hoping to influence young minds to become interested in this challenge. Our group also made an infographic to communicate ocean acidification in a simple way while conveying there is a potential solution.
