Student representatives from five classrooms presented their projects at NCEAS for the 2008 Kids Do Ecology Poster Session. This year's Poster Session was very special as many parents attended. Students presented the research they had done to other students, teachers, parents, NCEAS scientists, and staff.
A number of classrooms did the same experiment, looking at how sea animals use light to direct their movement to deep or shallow water. Another classs tested whether rocks can help sea snails hide from being eaten by sea stars, their predators. (They can!) Franklin School students created models of food webs.
From the presentations it was clear that this year’s students learned a lot about ecology, and practiced their presentation skills!
