Science Lesson Extends from Alaska to West Babylon

Senior High School students participated in their second distance-learning lesson this school year with a national park ranger from Fairbanks, Alaska, on May 18.

During the session, students learned about two main biomes found in Alaska as well as how the changes in Alaska can impact Long Island residents.

Science teacher Andrea Montalvo facilitated the open question-and-answer session between students and the national park ranger, learning about life in the north as well as careers in the National Parks Service.  
Earlier this year, students in Ms. Montalvo’s class participated in a lesson with scientists and educators from Monterey Bay Aquarium in California.
