Maine’s Positive Story of the Day ~ Blue Hill Consolidated School~
From Blue Hill Consolidated School: Ellie Gellerson, a former BHCS student and an MMA graduate is now a graduate student at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, where she is studying biogeochemistry. She is conducting research in the Arctic, and has been sharing information about her educational path and her research with students in Ms. Herrmann’s 7th grade science classes. Ellie and a professor from MMA will be visiting with 7th graders next week to do activities focused on plankton and ocean circulation. This is part of Ellie’s involvement in a program called Maine College Circle, which has the goal of raising awareness of Maine students about opportunities in STEM fields.
