Shark Cams & SEA trivia

Emma Baker & Alexa Collins, Canyon High School & Kings School Canterbury

Today we had a guest speaker, Amy Kukulya, a leading engineer behind shark cam at WHOI. She talked to us about her career pathways and aspirations in engineering and other fields such as environmental policy. She described many difficulties she has had to face in the field, like being the only female in a white male environment. Her talk was very inspirational and eye-opening for all of us.
