Dayton High School's Citizen Science Project

Dayton High School Marine Science and Environmental Science classes completed a Citizen Science Project this semester.  Linda Flaherty and Peggy Merrell attended an Ocean Plastic Pollution Summit at Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Mrs. Merrell introduced DOT (Do One Thing) as the title.   With five of their classes they conducted trash audits, learned about different types of trash, how to recycle, reuse, and repurpose items, how the marine and land ecosystems were affected by all the human creation of trash, and how the community could change what is occurring in the different ecosystems.  Students from the different classes presented at Healthy Communities Coalition, DHS advisory classes, DIS advisory classes, the Monterey Bay Aquarium (with Mr. Jordon Jennings helping to chaperone) and the LCSD School Board meeting.  The students who presented were Denali Casarez, Alexandra Edmondson, Caitlyn Koback, and Jean Wilson.
