Ella Lubin and Lily Hood are sixth graders at Blatchley Middle School. They attended Sitka WhaleFest this year and took along a KCAW recorder to do interviews.
Earlier this month, scientists from across the country visited Sitka to attend WhaleFest. It’s a four-day symposium focused on marine science. A large part of WhaleFest includes sending scientists into schools to talk to students. But Blatchley Middle School decided to try that in reverse this year, and sent students into WhaleFest to talk to scientists.
Sixth-graders Lily Hood and Ella Lubin took along a microphone and sent back this audio postcard.
Lubin and Hood produced the postcard as part of teacher Janelle Farvour’s language arts class.
