CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, October 31 - November 6, 1997 - 41 Milton Middle produces budding biologists Milton Middle School seventh graders got the chance to be- come marine biologists for a day when they took part in a field study program. Spearheaded by science teacher Anne Smith, the program is conducted annually for the purpose of educating students about marine life and oceanography. The students' vessel embarked from the Rehoboth-Lewes Canal, headed into the Delaware Bay and up the Broadkill River. It was in the Broadkill where the students conducted tests of water samples to determine temperature, turbidity, salinity, acidity and dissolved oxygen. The students also collected plankton in a net, studied a mud sample obtained with an instrument called a "bottom- grab," and dragged an "otter trawl" along the river's bed to examine organisms. At left, students showing off a Blue Crab they found during their travels are (l-r) Matt Beebe, Heather Seward, Jessica Pruitt-Barnett, Micah Vugrinic and Terell Johnson. Below, retired marine biologist Ron Smith, shown here ad- dressing a class, led the students in collecting water samples and fielded their questions. Shown listening to Smith are seventh graders (l-r) Nathan Miller, Brandy Bennett and Monica Ruiz, along with Dr. Amy Witter of the University of Delaware College of Marine Stud- ies. Smith said eight groups of seventh-grade students, the most in the program's history, enjoyed the field study this year. She said the school plans to offer the trip again next year.
