Earthwatch Expedition Fund for Martin Van Buren High School

Hello! My name is Carol Wang, and I am a science teacher at Martin Van Buren HS (MVBHS) and a proud recipient of the 2018 Project Kindle Fellowship from Earthwatch. This past July, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to go to Little Cayman with 7 other NYC Public School teachers to study endangered corals. It was certainly an amazing experience and one that I appreciate deeply and will never forget-- one that I would like to share with students.

As part of the Earthwatch mission, as well as our own MVBHS mission, I plan to take students with me to Catalina Islands to engage students in actual hands-on, scientific field research with established scientists in the field. It would be an opportunity of a lifetime, not only to inspire them to be an advocate for a sustainable environment, but also pursue studies in the STEM field and to teach them life skills. As you can imagine, in a school where nearly 3/4 of the students face economic hardships, the cost of the trip would make the expedition unattainable.

I am therefore asking for your help. Any donation you make (its tax deductible!) will help. Please help me bring this experience to a group of incredible students who have the potential to change the world for the better if given the opportunity.

Thank you!
