sSELF Program: The Great APES Sharing Conference

The Great APES present their data at Dowling College Sharing Conference in May of 2008.

The groups listened attentively to each presentation.

After a lunch of pizza and soda we visited the coral research laboratories escorted by Dr. John Tanacredi, Chairperson of the Department of Earth and Marine Sciences.

Here the group visited the Horseshoe crab research laboratory, again escorted by Dr. John Tanacredi, Chairperson of the Department of Earth and Marine Sciences.

Students posed for pictures with their new arthropod friends (horseshoe crabs). Students were supervised by Maria Brown, Kelly Sepe, Jean Infantino and Liz Moore.
