About this Grantee

Partnering with a local marine environmental organization, Mr. LaBanca and Ms. Coelho have designed a hands-on, inquiry-based scientific study for their disadvantaged biology and mathematics students. Students conduct field research on Holly Pond, an enclosed salt-water pond, to assess how water quality affects organisms in Long Island Sound. At the conclusion of the study, students present their research to the community during a symposium.
