HSW SCIENCE CLASS TAKES TO THE WATER

The students in Mr. Warner’s science class at High School West spent the day on a marine research vessel in Shinnecock Bay through SUNY Stony Brook out of Southampton. The students studied the abiotic and biotic factors of the surrounding waters. Students took salinity samples, sediment samples, temperatures of various depths in the water, in addition to the wind speed and air temperature.
The highlight of the trip was when they set out a net to capture various animals and they pulled in a juvenile dogfish shark. They also captured various crabs, fish, jellies, and shrimp.
