Synopsis

Post Superstorm Sandy – Fifth graders brave the cold temperatures to measure the level of the water and sand on the Jersey shore. The Emma Havens Young School students are working with the Army Corps of Engineers to design a program that will lessen the likelihood of coastal flooding following a natural disaster such as Superstorm Sandy. Teachers Jeanette Wehner and Jaime Pratt of Brick Township in Ocean County were awarded a grant from the Hipp Foundation to implement their project. The students will receive STEM education in a more authentic and engaging way at an earlier age to establish the basics and have the confidence to attempt more challenging courses later in their educational careers.
