DMS Science Classes Explore Environmental Impact at the Beach

The Team 8A science theme for the year is;  Is Andover a coastal community?  On Tuesday the team is going on a field study to Salisbury Beach State Reservation. The Reservation, located where the Merrimack River enters the Atlantic Ocean, is a perfect location to look at the impacts the town of Andover has on a coastal environment.
8A science will not only investigate how we impact the ocean but how the ocean impacts Andover.  We will conduct a trash survey, graph a beach profile as a proxy for sea level change, build Bohr models of coastal elements, and journal about how the conservation of mass can be applied to our everyday lives.  The interdisciplinary data collected on this trip will be used to start answering our theme question and many, many more!!
