2009 Science Expeditions

At Wisconsin Sea Grant’s station at UW-Madison’s “Science Expeditions 2009,” visitors learned about the relationships between phosphorus, zebra and quagga mussels, and excessive algae. They watched live mussels filter plankton via a high-definition monitor, examined mussels under microscopes, explored an interactive computer module, and saw video footage of the problem at its worst.

Wisconsin Sea Grant’s Vicky Harris and John Karl developed the computer module and guided visitors through it. Project Assistant Tim Tynan produced the computer activity. Photos: John Karl.
