Corals and Climate Group at the 2023 St. Petersburg Science Festival

Detailed Description

Sophie Chernoch, Sierra Bloomer, and Maddie Mette show how the layers of coral can be used to extract the age of a coral as well as the history of environmental conditions throughout its life at the 2023 St. Petersburg Science Festival. For more than 10 years, the St. Petersburg Science Festival has celebrated STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) activities with elementary school children and the public over a two-day event. The USGS has been a supporter of this event since its inception, and was a premiere exhibitor at this year’s event—exhibiting eight different activities during the public festival on Saturday, February 18th, 2023.
