||Connie Roth, HTCS Science teacher, received funds to explore
the coastal environment. Mrs. Roth submitted the grant entitled, "Oh
Say Can You Sea" to the Hancock Chamber of Education Committee for
the Make a Difference Grant. On August 1, she was rewarded with a check.
Her students will conduct a series of tests on the water quality of the
Mississippi Sound. These tests will include turbidity, pH, dissolved
oxygen, salinity, and coliform tests. The second part of this project,
"Living Responsibly on the Edge of the Ocean," will include
activities to make students more aware of their impact on our coastal
environment and to engage parents and families in these investigations.
