Seven Shoreham-Wading River High School students had a unique educational experience when they attended Molloy College’s Women in Science Day to celebrate the accomplishments of well-known women in science.

Along with science teacher Lori Racaniello and teaching assistant Denise Kohart, the five WISE club and two Science Research students attended a keynote lecture by Dr. Sylvia Earle who spoke about her experiences being a chief scientist of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; founder of the Sylvia Earle Alliance; and subject of the award-winning documentary Mission Blue, which highlights her campaign to create a global network of protected marine sanctuaries; among other accomplishments.

The students also heard from other renowned research scientists including Dr. Betty Borowsky, Dr. Julianne Chase, Dr. Merryl Kafka, and Dr. Jennifer Mattei. After the lectures, the students were treated to a meet and greet where they were able to speak with each of the research scientists.
