Smithsonian Marine Station

Caitlyn Taylor and Mason Wonka, Detective Science Winners

About a week ago Caitlyn and I went to the Smithsonian Marine Station down in Fort Pierce, Florida. We met up with a research scientist Sherry Reed. She is also a dive safety officer. She does experiments for people in other states that can’t do the experiments they want to. We had fun with seeing what she does about every day. She is working on a experiment testing what paint that goes on boats has more barnicles on them.

In the lab we got to look at sedament from after a hurrcane. And sedament at a dreged area. What we were looking for was forums. We looked at the sedament under a electronic mycroscope that was so 3D it was amazing! The part that was the best was that we were able to touch many different marine animals. My favorite animal that we touched was a lobster.

How would you make the oil spill go away before all the animals die. Because then you will not be able to eat fish or shrimp Because I love shrimp.In my school .I was reading a weekly reader about the oil spill it showed a Flamage all covered in oil and it dieing.
