7th Grade Students speak at Earth Day event and will present at an ecology forum

The Sierra Club of Maine invited HMS 7th grade students to speak about their research on the Invasive European Green Crab, and its impact on the coastal ecosystem of Maine. This invitation was part of an Earth Day commemoration. Duncan Birkbeck, Olivia Feeley and Sophie Walsh attended, along with Morgan Cuthbert, 7th grade math/science teacher. Congressman Mike Michaud spoke at this event. He commended the students for tackling this real-life issue, and for their continuing work on a solution.

In other Green Crab news, HMS 7th grade students have also been invited to speak about their research at the 2014 Ecology Forum, which will be held at the University of Maine. Congratulations to all!
Morgan Cuthbert, Duncan Birkbeck, Mike Michaud, Olivia Feeley, Sophie Walsh
