Future marine biologist? You betcha!

Future marine biologist? You betcha!

We had a lot of fun today working with the 4th and 5th graders at Blenmen Elementary school! We took over the MPR and had the chance to show lots of artifacts and teach the kids about ocean conservation! One aspect that I really appreciated was that the teachers spent time having me explain what it takes to become a marine biologist and what kind of jobs there were in the area. We want to encourage as many people as possible to study and explore the oceans and what better place to start than by educating elementary school kids about all they can do! Who knows, maybe the kid in the mohawk will become a marine biologist and figure out how to save sea turtles from pollution!
