“The Global Ocean Circulation”
Do you want to explore the ocean? The ocean is in constant motion, as water currents traverse the globe connecting the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans. These currents impact life in the ocean and Earth’s climate. This board game will show how the Earth’s oceans are all connected!
Dr. Eva Ma
University of Washington Tacoma, School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, Division of Science and Mathematics
“Gene Hacking: Changing DNA with CRISPR”
How can changes in DNA help scientists study how cells work? What is gene editing and how is it done? Come help us “fix” a gene and learn about the gene-editing technology CRISPR that is revolutionizing biology.
University of Washington, Department of Chemistry
“Machines to Find the Invisible”
Finding Waldo in the pages of a book is easy, but what if you had to spot Waldo in his book on Earth from a satellite orbiting in space? Help build a machine that can “see” and sort different objects, and learn how scientists use machines like this to find molecules in our bodies that are much, much smaller than what our eyes can see.
