A hard working and dedicated Life Science and Biology Teacher at Rainier Beach High School, Louise Wong, was awarded a $10,000 STEM grant to take 60 biology and life science students to the Olympic Peninsula to study the ever-changing ecosystem of the Elwha River.
According to Ms. Wong, “This river is an amazing place to study because 2 dams are being removed along the river which impacts the animals, fish, and the people who depend on it. This is a very unique opportunity for students to apply cross-curricular knowledge to a living system”.
Another example of the great teachers that we have in Seattle.
This is a very interesting project. More information on it can be found at Elwha River Restoration.
