Research reports Strawberries In Aquaponics vs. Soil We have an aquaponics system in our classroom. We have grown many different types of plants including strawberries. We have kept data to help us come up with our final decision if strawberries would grow better in soil or in our aquaponics system. 2018-02-15 gmsleech 1

Journal articles Findings: Climate change is leading to unpredictable annual snowfalls in Maine; causing economical, and safety concerns for the state. Abstract The purpose of this investigation was to see how climate change leading to unpredictability in the annual winter weather in Maine could cause economic problems for the state. This investigation was conducted by collecting research and data from many sources, including Princeton University Library, The Weather Collector, DataRefuge, State Climate Summaries | NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information, and Portland Maine's annual public works report. 2018-01-30 1MW 0
Blog entries Investigating Macros with students in the 5th grade I am an environmental educator outside of the school, working with lots of different classes. This year I embarked on a macroinvertebrate and water quality analysis with 5th graders. “…So then, we will get back to the classroom with all of our information that we collected at the brook and put it on a website called Vital Signs. This is a website for Maine students and Maine scientists collecting data about lots of different questions. This is big time stuff! This is for real! Other students and scientists will see our data and comment on it!” (Extra arm waving for emphasis). 2017-12-29 Wetlands4Me 0
Journal articles Are Green Crabs Invasive? Green crabs are invasive and bad. Green crabs are overpopulated and they overpopulate other crabs. On October 23 2017 my class went to Reid state Park to collect green crab data and why their invasive. We went to Reid State Park and we caught and released green crabs, and while we had them we measured from the last spine to last spine on each side. These three pie charts show how many male and females we caught at Reid State Park. Two of the pie charts have more males than females but the last one at Fort Popham show more females than males. 2017-12-21 MarsBars 2
Journal articles Findings: How much Green Crabs have Grown at Fort Popham and Griffith’s Head Abstract Green crabs have been affecting our ecosystem for as long as they've been in Maine. We are learning about them because we want to now how to get rid of them and because they're destroying our ecosystem. We caught our crabs by using a usual crab trap and caught a lot of crabs. We also put nail polish on the crabs to see if we could catch them again. I analyzed data on every year at Fort Popham and Griffiths Head and put it in a graph. The graphs show that there's been more crabs collected at Fort Popham than Griffiths Head in a short amount of time. 2017-12-21 crabbydestroyers 1
Journal articles FINDINGS: Green Crabs population 2017 Ft. Popham, Reid State Park and Todd’s Landing Abstract Everybody went to Ft. Popham, Reid State Park and Toddś Landing and caught a crazy amount of green crabs. It was unbelievable we can catch crabs that easily. These 5 graphs we have presented show the ratio of male and female. It's kind of confusing because 4 out of the 5 graphs there are more males than females. The graph stating there are females than males is at Fort Popham. We think the water must be warmer at Fort Popham than Griffins Head or Todd´s Landing. Our data show the damaging effect of green crab and what their doing to the environment. 2017-12-20 AYCAMOL 1
Journal articles Green Crab Population, Size and Impact in our Marine Ecosystem Abstract In our Core Science we went to Reid State Park, Griffins head, and Todds landing to study the green crab population. We did this to see how many green crabs are in our marine ecosystem. The method we used to do this was a catch and release system. We did this through a Legal crab trap. We caught over three hundred crabs and only a handful came back. Most of the crabs we caught where around 7 seven centimeters long. The green crabs are killing most of the animals in are ecosystem. Also if we were to continue doing this I would put more traps out in different places. 2017-12-20 FlufflyCrabbyCr... 0

Journal articles Findings, The Green Crab Population Might Not Be Growing As Fast As You Think So recently there's been very big fuss over the increasing number of green crabs and their danger to the ecosystem, but I have some very interesting data that backs up an interesting case. To get any of the data that I was going to use we had to go out and study the green grab population using the catch and release method. I then took the data that we found, added up all of what we found per year, then divide the amount of crabs we got per year by the number of traps used that year. 2017-12-20 Invasivecrabass... 1
