WISE Teacher Julia Harvey has set sail

In our last post, we introduced WISE teacher Julia Harvey, a biology and environmental science teacher at South Eugene High School who was accepted into NOAA’s Teacher at Sea Program. Julia is currently in the Gulf of Alaska, and she’s posted some great pictures of walleye pollock, squid and fin whales as she learns from the scientists aboard the Oscar Dyson. She works 12 hour shifts and helps process fish caught for the survey by weighing them, measuring them and organizing them by sex.
