…and all of this works just the same way with tea (and sometimes even better)!
Welcome to the active coffee break at iEarth GeoLearning Forum!

So nice to see you here! #KitchenOceanography is really about this: Sitting down with friends to enjoy spending time together — and suddenly getting distracted by your coffee. There are layers of different colours going on! Wow! What is going on? Why are they forming? And is this process relevant somewhere else? In the ocean? Really? Tell me more! So it’s really a great ice breaker to talk about climate matters.
What is super interesting about #KitchenOceanography is that once you have noticed something like this going on, you cannot unsee it.
#KitchenOceanography is thus a “transformative experience” (Pugh, 2011): “Transformative experiences occur when students actively use curricular concepts in everyday life to see and experience the world in a new, meaningful way” — and that’s what I love about them!
