The marine ecosystems are seriously affected by the accidental capture of marine animals such as sharks, octopi, turtles and dolphins while fishing. These untargeted animals, victims of fishing, are called bycatch. They are many times injured and thrown back in the ocean. In this game users need to move around their boat using the arrow keys and catch only fish.

Al Gore and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently won the Nobel prize and climate change is all over the news, yet no action is being taken commensurate with its scale. This course will provide students with the scientific literacy to understand the issue itself and consider existing solutions such as the Kyoto Protocol, numerous bills in the U.S. Congress, voluntary measures, etc. The guiding principle will be to promote the understanding needed to evaluate, develop, and propose emerging and creative solutions at individual, campus, and local levels, rather than analyze the essentially paralyzed global discussion.
