The 2016-2017 school year ended with exciting outreach adventures! Here are a few highlights:
- · Marine Academy of Science and Technology (MAST) Interns, Sierra Byrne and Zoe Sucato, were awarded an “Excellence in Marine Research” award. This award for their microplastics research with COA was presented by Liza Baskin, capstone teacher for the Biological Oceanography program. Congratulations, graduates!
- · COA was recognized at Long Branch’s George L. Catrambone Elementary School’s U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon awards ceremony for sustainable schools. Congratulations, GLC!
- · After COA presentations, Amerigo A. Anastasia School students wrote letters to persuade their local officials in Long Branch to curb beach litter by having concessions serve “straws only upon request.” Great job, AAA!
- · In May and June, COA provided advocacy education to over 2,700 students from pre-school students (Learning Path Preschool) to college level (Monmouth University). Many thanks to all the teachers!
