My science fair project!!

Posted on

 This year I did a project for my schools science fair. Mary Lee is a great white shark that was found off the coast of Cape Cod, Ma. by an organization named OCEARCH (Ocean Research). OCEARCH (www.ocearch.org) tags sharks with a device which allows them to track where they travel to.   I studied where she went, when she went there, and attempted to understand her behavior. She is 16 feet long and weighs 3,456 pounds. I intervewed some very nice people who taught me alot about sharks, water currents, and how the media treats sharks.  The people I interviewed on skype, and in person are, Jillian Morris (www.shark-girl.com), Chris Fischer (www.ocearch.org) , Paul Henderson (www.whoi.edu) , Steve Carey (http://buzzardsbaydivecenter.com/) and John Chisholm from Ma. Marine Fisheries.  I will continue to study Mary Lee, and her friend Genie during the summer and for as long as I can.

Thanks,
Alyssa

This summer I went to a place named Woods Hole Oceanagraphic Institute (http://www.whoi.edu), in Woods Hole, Ma.  It was really fun.

I got to see a lot of animals  like shrimp, baby sharks, a bunch of different types of fish, a star fish, and I even got to touch a horse shoe crab !!!! Then me and my dad went to a gift shop, but we dident buy anything.  It was still really fun, and I might just  want to go there again.
