Hands-on Science Exploration
A group of Senior House students spent the day engaged in at Stamford’s Cove Island Park. Run through SoundWaters Coastal Education Center, the students participated in the Watershed Science Research Study program, a rigorous, hands-on scientific study. Donning wetsuit waders, the students used sieves to collect particles from the Sound and then came ashore to analyze their findings. This ecological study emphasizes the fact that diversity and different life cycles of all organisms are important for the survival and health of Long Island Sound.
