Whale poop? Oil slick? Actually, it’s Phytoplankton!  If you like to breathe air and eat food, thank phytoplankton. Visible from space, these microorganisms are integral to all life.

Go2Qurious presents a new science and oceanography podcast designed especially for middle schoolers. Join host Dr Jamie Coull, and oceanographer co-hosts Dr Lachlan McKinna and Dr Ivona Cetinić from 15 August to explore ocean ecology and NASA’s PACE Mission.

Jamie, Lachlan and Ivona interview 11 scientists and engineers who work on NASA’s most advanced ocean-colour and aerosol satellite mission to date: PACE (Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud and ocean Ecosystem). Each episode is packed with science activities and resources. There are fantastic science prizes to be won, and the podcast can be enjoyed by students, teachers and families alike.
