Hi Stallions! On November 3, 2017 STEM students went out sailing. I will tell you the three actives we did in STEM sailing. We learned about pollution, and what type of trash that’s been tossed in the ocean. STEM students learned that some trash takes a long time to decompose, sometimes FOREVER!! Fish sometimes eat the trash, or it goes into their body and injures them!

Next, our groups had to make their own ROV, a remote operated vehicle. Groups got to name their ROV. It had three engines, one goes right, one goes left, and one goes up. STEM students had to make sure their ROV could float and was not too heavy. Sadly, we didn’t get to test the ROV in the pool. So we had to take it apart….carefully.

Lastly, we got to go on a fancy boat called a Duffy boat. Our groups got to go to different locations to collect water samples. That’s when STEM students got different jobs that tested different parts of water quality. We got to test how clear the water was, how salty, the temperature,  and more.  This trip was amazing and the STEM students are excited for are next sailing trip.
