Youth Become Sea Turtle Biologists in Afterschool

The official sea turtle nesting season began March 1, 2022, and there are already nests across Palm Beach County’s beaches. Youth participating in the Literacy Coalition’s Stories & STEM opportunity at the Edna Runner Tutorial Center’s afterschool program became sea turtle biologists after reading “Mystery of the Turtle Snatcher” by Kyla Steinkraus (one of Rourke’s Mystery Chapter Books). Youth learned about the anatomy of turtles and experienced the Traveling Trunk program through a partnership with Inwater Research Group.
