PDF > Registration Form
We are very pleased and excited to invite you to participate in a marine science program that
will begin here at Green Vale on Friday, Jan. 9, 2015 from 12:30 till 2:30. A second session is
planned in the same time slot for Friday, Jan. 23, 2015. Our presenter, Brett Curlew, is an
experienced scientist, diver, explorer and educator who, through his affiliation with
Brookhaven National Labs, presented a superb four-day ROV program last spring for our
Participants will be asked to bring a packaged lunch and to arrange for transportation home. A
fee of $50 will be required for students who attend either or both of those sessions. The first
session will include a lab activity in Oceanology in which students will determine physical
characteristics of different types of water such as density and salinity.
Another notice will be sent to describe an exciting marine science program we will offer
beginning in February and running until the Spring Break. Brett plans to do some field work
with participants when the weather gets warmer.
Green Vale is planning other programs and events that will serve as the core of a cutting-edge
Marine Science program. The Friday programs are just the beginning! So get involved, learn
and enjoy as we kick things off.
