This OLogy activity shows kids that there are simple, but very helpful things they can do to protect the ocean -- even if they live nowhere near the water. The activity opens by introducing kids to Gabby, a future marine biologist who wants to study dolphins. Then it has a checklist of 14 ways kids can be ocean helpers that includes asking for tap water instead of bottled water and leaving plants and animals where they find them. Less

Dolphins and other marine mammals have pretty big brains compared to the size of their bodies. That's one indication of high intelligence, and anyone who has seen them perform at an aquarium or zoo can attest to that fact. Science reporter Bob Hirshon introduces us to one scientist who's trying to find out how dolphins got so brainy. Less

In this lab students experience how dolphins and other echolocating animals use their senses to locate and identify objects with out using their sense of sight. A blindfold removes students sight and a stream of water replaces the sound waves. Students observe the effect of changing distance on echolocation. Less

NBC's Lester Holt looks at the physically demanding pre-season ritual of NFL training camp. Douglas Casa, head of the Korey Stringer Institute at the University of Connecticut, and athletic trainers from the Pittsburgh Steelers explain what NFL players must do to stay hydrated and replenish the essential nutrients needed to maintain good health during rigorous practices. "Science of NFL Football" is a 10-part video series funded by the National Science Foundation and produced in partnership with the National Football League. Less

This case study is based on the 1978 – 1988 Bottlenose dolphin die-offs along the Atlantic coast of the U.S. It demonstrates nature of science, as new information evolved theories change. New observations lead to more sophisticated inferences, as more observations are carefully recorded, better inferences can be made. Less

This fun Web article is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about marine biology. It All Started in the Ocean looks at how the world's five great oceans are linked and how scientists know that life probably started in the oceans. Mysteries of the Deep explains that scientists know less about the ocean than they do about the dark side of the Moon. There Are So Many Ways to Live in the Sea debunks the perception that the ocean is one big ecosystem. Underwater Wonders has links to trading cards that showcase some of the "biggest, smallest, fastest, weirdest, coolest, spookiest stuff" on the planet. Ocean Layer Cake profiles the sunlit, twilight, and dark zones. Life on the Edge looks at continental shelves, where 80 percent of all sea life lives. Just How Do You Live in the Water? highlights some of the special adaptations sea organisms need. The Oceans and Us looks at human dependence on the ocean and the risks we pose to it. Less
