AB: We present the preliminary results of a collaboration between a middle school Environmental Science class, taught by an ARMADA Master Teacher, and a college Marine Environmental Science program using Oceanography topics and laboratories to reinforce New York City science standards. Specific topics within the regular middle school curriculum are chosen. After students have received regular instruction from the middle school teacher, including hands-on experiments, the college instructor visits the classroom and reinforces the object lesson. This is followed up by a visit to the college oceanography laboratory where students participate in a different hands-on experiment that reinforces the original topic. Students can use these experiences to develop and design simple research projects. Example using density and buoyancy will be presented.
