Sarah and Lily Jenkins of Molokai High School used GIS software to investigate whether Red Mangrove will reach and establish itself on Molokai’s fringing reef and what the resulting socio-economic and ecological impacts would be, if so.
Sarah and Lily will be competing in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in May after winning awards at both the 2015 Maui Schools Science & Engineering Fair and the 2015 Hawai’i State Science and Engineering Fair (HSSEF).
Congratulations Sarah and Lily for making Moloka`i, Maui County and the entire state of Hawai`i so proud!
“Thank you again for investing in my sister Lily and I to attend the MEDB GIS workshop a few months ago. Please also send our mahalos to Charlie Fitzpatrick for providing us with the ArcGIS 10.2.2 software and professional development. Our success at the Hawaii State Science and Engineering Fair would not have been possible without the support of MEDB-WIT and Esri (Charlie Fitzpatrick and Craig Clouet).“ - Sarah Jenkins, Moloka`i High School Senior.
