This is a fun, amazing branch of science. Join me as we focus on an discuss ocean and environmental physics.
– Ocean physicists: currents, physics of marine life / octopus, physics of sharks and whales, physics of deep sea life
– Environmental physicists: measurement and analysis of interactions between organisms and their environment, River bends compare to Mars, atmospheric climate modeling/pollution, renewable energy
Recommended for 5th – 9th grade students.

I’m Sarah Wellence, a senior Physics major and Astronomy and Math minor at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. I’m from Buffalo, NY, did my freshman year at Texas A&M and then transferred to UTK. This past summer I was a fellow researching Neutron Stars and their equation of state, and now I am doing research on rocket propulsion systems. I am President of UTK’s Society of Physics Students chapter as well as being on the SPS national council.
