My 100+ “Blue Planet” introductory oceanography students and I file in as the Human Nutrition class files out of our auditorium-style classroom, typical for general education courses at our large state institution. About three weeks into the semester, this noisy and disorganized changing of the guard occurs as meal plans are turned in at the back of the room and an impromptu question about tides leads to a diagram on the whiteboard at the front. Students are in my classroom twice a week for two reasons. First, they must take a science class despite the tenuous connection between science and fashion merchandising. Second, they are possibly avoiding sciences that they have decided are “hard” (physics and chemistry), and they think oceanography might be interesting. After all, they always enjoy Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, and have even watched some of that BBC Blue Planet series for which the class is named. Easy A, with dolphins and sharks, right?
