Something smelled a little fishy in the 400 wing of Kingsborough Middle School on June 27. Some students who are getting ready to enter their freshman year of high school also took part in the summer GEAR UP program where they were introduced to the world of biology. Students were given various assignments that related to sharks and the natural world around them. They even learned how to dissect a shark and identify various organs. In an English class, students read a story about a comet hitting Earth and shifting the water currents and how that would affect our global climate. They also got an introduction to algebra.
