GCE-LTER Schoolyard

Katie Holliday and her middle school students do many of their science activities in a nearby salt marsh and on a segment of the beach. Katie teaches science at the Tybee Island Maritime Academy on Tybee Island near Savannah. She participated in the GCE-LTER SCHOOLYARD program in the 2014 and 2021 Schoolyard sessions. Her experiences at UGAMI with the scientists in the field afforded her great insight into teaching long term research to her students. She now replicates many of those activities into her own long-term science projects.
