Supports NY Aquarium
the support of Assemblyman Joseph Lentol of School District 14,
which encompasses Greenpoint and Williamsburg, the New York Aquarium’s
Education Department received a $10,000 local initiative grant
for preparing students of marine biology. The Aquarium’s Aquaravan,
equipped with an instructor, biofacts, curriculum materials and
teaching tools, visited fourth and fifth-grade classes to introduce
them to the behavior and biology of select animals and the ecology
of our wet worlds.
The in-school preparation culminated in a “Super Science Day”
at the New York Aquarium. Almost 900 students, teachers, Assemblyman
Lentol and parents participated in science-station explorations
involving invertebrate workshops, fish printing, penguin jeopardy
games, chalk drawing, shark biofacts, and dolphin demonstrations.#
