Sixth graders in Ms. Helen Haskell's science class had the opportunity to examine a Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) float. The float is used to study earth science and how the climate is changing. It is very similar to the two Sandia Prep-sponsored floats (named Sundevil Sam and Sundevil Lion) currently in the Southern Ocean. Students will be able to figure out the Antarctic floats' real-time locations and use online data to conduct experiments. Visit http://soccomatsea.
