Master Idea Seekers at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory

The Idea Seekers got a chance to see what it is like to be a scientist by talking with Master Idea Seeker Scientists and doing some experiments at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Scientists are explorers. It is exciting and thrilling to be the first one to find something. Scientists don't read it in a textbook; they go out and discover it.

The Idea Seekers helped with an experiment to measure the CO2 emissions in their breath.

All the Idea Seekers tasted salt water samples of different oceans around the world. The amount of salt in the ocean will be changed by climate change and that will affect the plants and animals that live in the ocean.

Master Idea Seeker Juerg talked to the Idea Seekers about his experiments to capture CO2 from the air and store it in rocks. This is a new way to help the planet since we know that the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is going up. If we can store it in rocks instead of in the air it might be better for the planet.

Ethan Supernova and Ichi Penguin check out what is in the water through the microscope. These tiny animals are part of the food chain and these animals and others like them are affected by changes in water temperature from global climate change.
