Science Teacher Christine Bertko Leads Marine Biology Workshop for Girls

Several Bay Area students will benefit from Mrs. Bertko’s Science Educational expertise as she leads a "Fishing For the Future" workshop at this weekend's Expanding Your Horizons Conference -- Motivating Women in Science and Mathematics.

 

She will be doing a Seafood Watch lesson in which the students, as Marine Biologists, investigate the sustainability of various fishing practices on fish populations and ocean health.

 

An excerpt from the Workshop Registration Form:

Fishing for the Future

Be a Marine Biologist as you investigate sustainable fishing methods using a skittles model. You will move through several fishing seasons in different oceans as you learn about how technology, population growth and fishing practices contribute to the health of our oceans.
