THE STORY:

NEW YORK HARBOR SCHOOL wrote -

The Marine Biology Research Program of Study is a 3 yr. program that will jump start high school students in core marine science topics employing hands-on, problem-based learning strategies. Students will begin by building and studying simple aquatic ecosystems; formulate experiments with these systems; learn the biology, chemistry, physics, and ecology behind them; and apply basic instrumentation techniques to monitor them. Once these sets of “in house” skills have been mastered, the program will then shift students’ attention to the natural ecosystems around Governor’s Island through the formulation of projects around 3 main topics: oyster restoration, habitat characterization, and water quality monitoring with a student built and maintained network around the Hudson River Estuary. Students will learn how to formulate projects, submit professional reports, present at national and international research fairs (e.g. Intel Talent Search), and, ultimately, use their own data to propose resource management solutions to local government agencies. Upon satisfactory completion of this program students will also be eligible for 12 college credits and various certifications that will give them a competitive advantage when applying to college.
