Cara Pekarcik, a teacher from North Quincy High School, joined several scientists on a recent PolarTREC expedition to Antarctica that studied diatoms, a kind of algae. The group went there to get baseline information on these algae so they could later understand any changes the algae might undergo. Those of you who have been reading about climate change probably know that there have been lots of changes in the ice and in marine life documented by climate scientists. Now, we have a chance to hear one of our local teachers help us to understand more and tell us about the lesson plans she's been making to share with her students. The talk is free and open to the public. Students are welcome. There will be hands-on activities as well as a talk.
North Quincy High School (316 Hancock Street)
Thursday, March 30, 6-7:30pm.
Cara Pekarcik will also be at the South Shore Science Festival at the Quincy Center for Innovation on Earth Day, April 22. Hope you can make it to one of these events!
