Cape Hatteras students explore local impact of science and technology

Students in advanced foods classes, AP bio and middle school STEM science programs at Cape Hatteras Secondary traveled to Wanchese for a STEAM field trip under the guidance of foods teacher Evan Ferguson and science teacher Erin Del Monte.

The group first visited the Coastal Studies Institute to view the RISING exhibit, which focuses on community perspectives on climate change. Following discussions, students engaged in a debate on whether it should be the state’s responsibility to force residents to leave due to sea level rise or the individuals.

Next, students visited O’Neal’s Sea Harvest to enjoy a sea-to-table lunch followed by a tour of O’Neal’s fish house to see where their lunch came from and discuss the Outer Banks’ role in the global seafood trade.

Students then talked with Bob Peele at the Wanchese Seafood Industrial Park about the history of the park and its role in North Carolina’s commerce.

Finally, the group toured Blackwell Boatworks to connect another career choice and coastal Carolina commodity.

Hatteras Island Youth Education Fund sponsored this cross-curricular, grades seven-12 STEAM field trip.
