Curriculum printed!

The Schooba curriculum works as an interactive guide, where  a combination of lessons, activities, and demonstrations present standards-based science through scuba diving.

In the pilot curriculum, 5 NYS Intermediate Level (Grades 5-8) Science Core Curriculum Major Understandings are covered:

- LE 1.2d  During respiration, cells use oxygen to release the energy stored in food.  The respiratory system supplies oxygen and removes carbon dioxide (gas exchange)

- PE 2.1b  As altitude increases, air pressure decreases

- PE 3.1d  Gases have neither a determined shape nor a definite volume.  Gases assume the shape and volume of a closed container

- PE 3.1h  Density can be described as the amount of matter that is in a given amount of space.  If two objects have equal volume, but one has more mass, the one with more mass is denser

- PE 3.1i  Buoyancy is determined by comparative densities

Not the best pic in the world, but a general sense of what they look like
