JUSTIN KAPUT IN ANTARCTICA

Justin Kaput, selected as one of forty Grosvenor Teacher Fellows by National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions, will speak about his Antarctica adventure on Wednesday, April 10 at 7 p.m. at the Suffield Senior Center, 145 Bridge Street.  .

Last December, Mr. Kaput embarked on a trip to the Antarctic Peninsula and Weddell Sea.  He collected samples of the waters to see if micro plastics were impacting zooplankton and krill.  Now back home, he and his students are analyzing climate change data to see if there has been an impact on the baleen whale population.  Learn about his adventure and research during his exciting presentation.
