Review: Fall Semester ’13 Jade and Tahirah remove the plumbing from our recirculating system to prepare it for its move to the greenhouse. With the generous support of our scholars, we were able to move our lab to the Marine Science room in 3 days. On October 12 we set off to restore eel grass at Brooklyn Pier’s Park. Our young marine scholars prepare to make water quality measurements at the Brooklyn Piers Park. Our water quality data has been updated by the SEALs team and our high school data manager, Violeta Gonzalez. On October 29th, we conducted our Harbor SEALs Citizen Science training workshop with our youngest members. Our intermediate research students have been putting together research plans for over 10 different projects. 5 of those students have qualified for college credit through S.U.N.Y. Albany’s University in the High School program. On October 31st, our research scholars teamed up with Rachael of the Rozalia Project to monitor microplastics in the Hudson River Estuary. Kieron, Brendan, and Nicolle tally the microplastics found in their samples. We’ve been able to ramp up our marine science project analyses using parametric statistics with our advanced research scholar, Pablo. On November 9th, we attended The Nature Conservancy’s Green Careers Fair and exposed our research scholars to Work-Based learning opportunities. On November 14th, we successfully installed our water quality sonde PVC enclosure by our Ecodock in collaboration with the Vessel Operations program of study team. On November 25th, we were visited by a special guest, Anna, who is biking through all 50 US states to talk to us about not forgetting to follow our passion. We celebrated our second annual Thanksgiving meal with the Harbor SEALs Citizen Science team. Pictionary at the Harbor SEALs Thanksgiving Bash! Harbor SEALs Thanksgiving Bash!
