ALOHA STAR OF THE SEA OHANA!
I ka nānā no a ’ike
by observing, one learns
May 14th-16th, I will be taking 20 seventh and eighth grade students to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park to participate in the 2015 National Geographic Bio Blitz! Students, teachers, rangers, cultural practitioners, scientists, and community members will join forces to conduct a biological survey of the park.

Students (and Parents):
Please connect to Star of the Sea's middle school classes on Edmodo to stay up-to-date! The Science class group includes homework assignments, online resources, project outlines, lab rubrics, and important communication.
Middle school students investigated coastal ecology at Sandy Beach Park in February! With Hawai'i Nature Center educators, students learned about marine debris and cleaned up the beach. Students also explored tide pools and collected environmental and biodiversity data. This exciting day of experiential, outdoor science learning was the makai component of our From Mauka to Makai: Understanding Climate Change Impacts in the Ahupua’a program.
