Teaching kids about saltwater intrusion through an activity involving growing their own plants


I am passionate about giving back to the community and teaching others about the wonders of science. I want others to understand, appreciate, and engage in science. I have made it a mission of mine to participate in as many education and outreach as I can to instill the next generation with a passion for science.

Events I have participated in include:

  • Dauphin Island Sea Lab Discovery Day
  • FIU’s Sea Level Solutions Center King Tide Citizen Science Day
  • Florida Bay Day Science Outreach
  • Miami River Day
  • Frost Science Museum Miami Coastal Restoration Events
  • Climate Voices Network Speaker
  • USA Science and Engineering Festival
    Colleague Shelby Servais teaching kids about how to measure salinity using a refractometer
