Biology III:  H.S. Marine Biology & Lab (10th-12th)

Marine Biology concentrates on marine wildlife and marine habitats.  The course investigates general oceanography: the abiotic and biotic factors influencing the various marine environs; marine animal and plant habits and life cycles; the anatomy of many macroscopic marine creatures, such as clams, starfish, and sharks; and man's interaction with the marine world.  The lab component includes microscopic studies, dissections, observation of live specimens and activities designed to help students understand a wide range of concepts related to marine life.  In addition, if there is enough interest, we will organize trips to the TN and GA aquariums.
