This summer, I spent five weeks working as a teacher’s assistant at the Cornell Cooperative Extension in Southold, New York. I’ve spent many summers working at this location, and this summer was the most time I’ve spent there. I worked under Mark Cappellino, educating young local children about the marine ecosystems that surround their homes and schools. The children are always fully engaged in learning about the various animals that inhabit Peconic Bay – they especially love to observe the huge horseshoe crabs and minuscule seahorses. Their favorite activity is to drag a seine net through the water off the beach to see what kind of animals they can catch. Another successful summer at Cornell Cooperative Extension!
