Crowe Science Field Excursion

East Quogue Sixth Graders took their first Crowe Science Field Excursion on Friday.

Guided by our partners from the Group For The East End, the students rotated through several learning stations. Our young scientists studied the physical properties of the Shinnecock Bay Estuary. They measured air temperature, cloud cover, wind direction and wind speed. Additionally the students observed the tide and soil.

Further tasks included exploring the water quality of the bay and measuring salinity, turbidity and water temperature. The students learned about vegetation zones in the salt marsh ecosystem and studied the five kingdoms of living organisms.

We would like to thank Mr. Parsons for working with us to catch specimens for our Living Bay Aquarium located in the East Quogue Elementary School.

Thanks to our Sixth Grade Team for organizing this very unique learning experience.

This program was made possible by the generosity of the Crowe Grant Fund.
