Sojourner’s Truth’s Second Journey
For those of you having followed the JFK Middle School mini boat that was launched in 2018 and then recovered off the coast, she’s at it again! While we’ve been busy remote learning, students at JFK prepped for a second time the mini boat that was sponsored by the generosity of the NEF. Working with Cassie Stymiest and Educational Passages, the boat was moved from the safety of oceanographer Jim Manning’s backyard back down to the cape, where science teacher, Kate Parrott met up with her to add some JFK swag for our “message in a bottle” and the boat was passed off to Captain Sean Bercaw to go out with him and his crew yet again.
