Gulf of Maine Drifters
Mr. Smith's Fourth Grade students need to release their ocean drifter into the Gulf of Maine and hope to participate in marine science activities on the ocean. Their class is rambunctious and enthusiastic. They particularly enjoy being active outdoors. This group is not afraid of hard work and loves to share what they do. There is a genuine interest to discuss and extend connections between academics, activities and the world as they know it. They have been active throughout the year in watershed studies including hosting a local Connecticut River clean up team, a public watershed informational night, and raising Brooke Trout in the classroom to release in our local river, the Ammonoosuc.
The fourth grade has been working on a watershed studies all year including a river cleanup, water shed day, and raising trout in the classroom. The culminating activity will be designing and building a drifter. The drifter is a GPS device designed to drift in the ocean currents and allow GOMI (The Gulf f Maine Institute) to track its path. This is the third year of the drifter project in response to significant temperature changes in the Gulf of Maine and its impact on sea turtles and other marine life. The Ninth Wave is a catamaran that will sail into the Gulf of Maine to release the drifter. The trip also allows the students to participate in marine science learning stations set up in the boat with teachers and crew members providing instruction.
Now through Thursday, March 30, when family and friends enter the promo code LIFTOFF at checkout, Donors Choose will match their donations dollar for dollar.
HOORAY! THIS PROJECT IS FULLY FUNDED!
