Tiffany Oliver’s IB HL biology seniors took a grant-funded field trip to the Florida Aquarium and nearby Fantasy Island Wednesday, October 26. Students met at the aquarium and took a boat to Fantasy Island, a small island in Tampa Bay. Students tested water and measured plankton on the boat. On the island, students rotated to three different stations to sieve the water for fish, record the invertebrates found in the bay, and run transect lines to measure biodiversity on the shore.
