Jellyfish in a Bottle – Oceanography
Jellyfish are one of nature’s most bizarre and beautiful animals. The students were put into the role of biomedical modeling engineerings and tasked with creating life-like models of jellyfish! Jellyfish have a transparent, bell-shaped body that is 95% water and allows for perfect camouflage. Many creatures of the deep ocean, including an estimated 50% of all species of jellyfish, often exhibit bioluminescence.
Ask your camper: Why do jellyfish bioluminesce?
