Overnight trip at Huntsman Marine Science Centre

by Ms. Savoie - Monday, October 20, 2014

A great deal of work and fun was had on the annual Advanced Biology 121 overnight trip at Huntsman Marine Science Centre. We spent a lovely Friday ( Oct 17) afternoon profiling the intertidal zone of Brandy Cove on the Passamaquoddy Bay. Students spent over two hours determining species present in quadrants and determining elevation of the shore. We painted periwinkles with lovely shades of nail polish to determine population density. Friday night was spent gathering all the data and making graphs, till 11pm! Louis M left us to go help the football team beat Harrison Trimble High School, so he missed all that Friday night fun. Saturday was spent in the lab performing experiments on Sea Stars and Sea Urchins, along with a lecture on Sea Lice!
