Borrow the Coral Bleaching Kit


Developed by the Coral Resilience Lab at the Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology, this activity seeks to bring a tangible visualization of coral bleaching and will give students a better understanding of how ocean warming events and other stressors affect the health of corals, and that of those which do not experience bleaching. As a parallel, students will be able to see the physical change that the animal undergoes when exposed to a warming event. Students will be able to answer the following questions:

  • What is a coral and what happens when coral bleaches?
  • What causes coral bleaching?
  • What are resilient corals and how are they beneficial?
