About the Event

Skyler & Trevor work at Harbor Branch here in Florida. They are teaming up on Wednesday to share the science between engineering/technology, biology and the ocean. They will share  about what it means to be an ocean scientist and hopefully inspire some kids to pursue any passions they have for ocean health. Trevor McKenzie: Degree in Mathematics/Ocean Engineering Study Area: Ocean optics- How light interacts with water and what it can tell us about the ocean. I specifically work on a laser imager which takes pictures of large fish and ocean particles, and how small things in the ocean greatly effect ocean health and the “biological pump”. Also I’ll talk briefly about how technologies like, AUV’s (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles), satellites, drones,acoustics and holographic imaging tell use more about plankton, bioluminescence, and ocean health. Overall, I’ll keep things pretty broad but scale up the cool techy stuff. Skyler Klingshirn: Degree: Environmental/Marine Science and Biology Study Area: I’ll talk about all 7 species of sea turtles, or focus specifically on the 5 species that Florida sees and some characteristics about them, such as their diet. Also, I’ll talk about in detail sea turtle nesting and how that is a big opportunity for researchers to learn more about these animals and what data sea turtle researchers collect. Finally, I can talk about specific research areas I am involved in, such as looking at sea turtle health, what we are doing to help sea turtles, and why they are important.
