Week 2: Deep Dive into Bioluminescence 

See a teaser for week 2, watch Wednesday’s video below!

For full access to activity sheets, curated content, discussion boards and the ability to participate in live sessions for each of the weeks, please purchase a membership!  

This week we will be exploring bioluminescence, or the biochemical emission of light by a living organism. This natural phenomenon happens right here in Southern California and you might have seen the glowing trails made by dolphins and surfers on the news as they moved through mass amounts of plankton. That light you’re seeing is bioluminescence! 

Can you think of any ocean animals that use bioluminescence?
