On Thursday, May 20, at 6:30 p.m., the Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition and the Belfast Free Library will host a presentation given by students from Dave Thomas’ AP Environmental Science class at Belfast Area High
The program, “Challenges and Solutions for the Belfast Bay Watershed” will take place on Zoom. Please register in advance by going to https://belfastlibrary.org/virtual-programs/.
The presentation will highlight student research on current environmental issues in the Belfast Bay Watershed. BAHS students, Grace Hall, Jonah Lovejoy, and Chelsea Gaiero, will make separate short presentations about research they have conducted over the past year as part of the Maine State Science Fair as well as citizen science projects.
Topics include effects of temperature on embryonic fish development, abundance and distribution of green crabs, using green crabs as lobster bait, and the installation of a water level sensor in Belfast Harbor.
Dave Thomas, their science teacher, has taught high school science in four public high schools in New York, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Maine over the past 20 years. He teaches Advanced Placement Enviromental Science and coaches students in extracurricular science competitions.
