Maya Labs Get "Good"er and "Good"er*

5th graders worked with primitive technologist, Nancye Good, to learn Mayan building methods.  By lashing sticks into tripods and thatching phragmites reeds hung on a crossbar, they were able to build some pretty good shelters.   See for yourself.

BNS is part of BOP

Robert Buchanan

BOP? Billion Oyster Project that is. As part of their Water Study, fourth graders will help monitor a net of oysters.  Hoping that these filter feeders, and keystone species, will once again flourish in local waters. On Election Day, Robert Buchanan, Field Technician, BOP, led BNS 4th grade teachers through procedures and protocols.



These are our oysters.  Getting base line data.


Counting oysters not as easy as you think.


Graduates ready to work with their students.

Bye Bye Oysters til later.
