The topic of April’s Monthly Interaction is “Discovering Ocean Science” presented by Dr. Tonya Shearer. Tonya is a marine biologist and molecular ecologist whose research has focused on the use of genetic and genomic technology to assess coral reef health. She spent over nine years working at Georgia Tech as a Research Scientist studying environmental influences on the health and connectivity of coral reefs in the Caribbean and in Fiji. Her new venture is the Discover Science Center, an informal science education facility designed to supplement the STEAM curriculum taught in K-12 schools and homeschool programs. Please join us on April 15 at 9 am when Tonya will share her experiences studying invasive species and engaging in K-12 outreach.
