The Golden Forest
A new childrens' book called "The Golden Forest" by SBC scientists Carol Blanchette and Jenny Dugan has been publlished. "The book lays the groundwork for introducing students to observational science and linking it to the kind of quantitative reasoning that scientists use," Dugan explained. It is geared toward upper elementary students, as Santa Barbara School have chose ocean science as the new sixth-grade curriculum. The sandy beach ecosystem is very user-friendly and accessible to all ages, and the book opens the door to doing exciting science with schoolchildren on our campus beaches, which are remarkably rich. "The Golden Forest" is available at the Reef, which is open to the public on Saturdays (UCSB press release).
