With a $200 Roots and Shoots mini-grant, we will send 5 girls (age minimum is 13, so only a few of our members qualify) to a Job Shadowing class at Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA. The choices include Veterinary Medicine, Mammalogy, Marine Biology, and others. This unique program is consistent with the goals of both Roots and Shoots, in its environmental impact, as well as our group, MESSAGE, in advocating the importance of STEM fields for females.

Our group will be working with one tank of oysters that we placed in a Brooklyn waterway. We will visit the tank four times during the school year, collecting data on the conditions of the water, health, size and growth of the oysters, as well as taking stock of any additional flora and fauna co-existing with our oyster population. Outside of these four visits, we will be working within our classroom to learn about the oysters themselves; why did the start disappearing from New York; what was their benefit to our community; why are we working so hard to bring them back? In order to properly collect data regarding the oysters, students will be learning about the oysters themselves: how do they live, grow, reproduce, and what do they need to survive. They will also need to become familiar with this specific type of data collection, which means they will be exposed to many tools for measuring water turbidity, weather conditions, specimen sampling and more. As a result, their STEM knowledge will be greatly increased from exposure to real-life science and problem solving!
