Last Friday our 8th graders concluded their Sea Perch Program. It was an amazing week, and I am proud of how our students met the challenges from the project. We even had a surprise visitor. Ms. Bonita Pothier, who is an aide to Senator King, heard about the Sea Perch Program and came to visit. I would like to thank Ed Cormier who is the STEAM Coordinator from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for collaborating with Ms. Sara Nason and Mr. James Cantara to organize this amazing opportunity for our students. Mr. Cormier also was responsible for acquiring the materials needed to build the ROVs and for organizing all the volunteers who came and assisted our students. Also, a big thank you to all the volunteers who showed up each day to help and to our 8th grade teachers for adjusting their schedules so, that the Sea Perch Program could occur. Well done!

Day 4 of the Sea Perch Program brought numerous smiles. Teams of 8th graders tested their underwater ROVs. Once students tested, and if necessary made corrections to their ROVs, they were given a new challenge, which is "What modifications could they make to their ROV that would allow it to contain floating pollutants or pollutants on the floor of the body of water. I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
Success! Many of the 8th graders ROVs were completed and given a quick trial this afternoon. Tomorrow the rest will be tested, and if an ROV is unsuccessful; then the team has to deduce why their ROV does not work and one up with solution. All valuable skills to be learned. A thank you to Ms. Strait who shot a quick video of her class's first successful ROV. The video is too large for alive feed so, I will post it as news feed.
