SVHS students view the world of cell biology
SVMS students James DeHoyos (L) and Chris Collins (R) examine parts of ancient treasure ships. Treasure hunter Roee-Mary Radick provides expert commentary. Colline views a two-tine forte from the late p700s, found on awreck off the Dutch Caribbean island of St. Eustius. DeHoyos has a ship’s bul spike from ! the treasure ship Atocha that sank in 1622. Radick wears 18th century trade beads and an Eight Real coin, [also known as a piece of eight.
Students at Smithson Valley Middle School were able to hear what it is really like for people to follow h'\htit dreams and life’s goals.
and Rose-Mary Radick, two famous sea explorers, treasure hunters, and anthropologists, visited SVMS to talk lo seventh grade students.
The Radick’s are living their dream as explorers, producers, and lecturers. "Students have been talking about
how they can dare to dream dreams, how they can set goals in life, then attain those goals," Maijory Collins, SVMS seventh grade science teacher, said.
"The Radick’s told the students an extremely positive message.
"Students, and people in general, must persevere in their dreams. That means stay in school, become the best you can in order to make your dreams come true,” Collins said.
"The Radick’s, as anthropologists, try to grasp history and faring it lo life. They live in a very high-tech world." she added.
"Kids are the future. They can change their lives and team to know about their future by studying the past," Rose-Mary Radick said.
The study of life goals is an interdisciplinary unit, combining language arts, history, mathematics, and the sciences.
