Hudson Montessori School Students Earn Exemplary Awards at 2024 Billion Oyster Project Symposium

Twenty-one of our Middle School and 30 Upper Elementary students joined groups from local schools for the 2024 Billion Oyster Project Symposium. Ten Hudson Montessori School presentations joined the over 200 projects submitted for review.

The 10 submissions from our school focused on biofouling, women water warriors, invasive species, biodiversity, pollution, and climate change. We are impressed with each project and the creative variety of mediums students used to present their research: slideshows, poems, creative writing, a puppet show, an advocacy campaign, a written newspaper article, game design, and a traditional science research paper.

Two of the projects earned Exemplary Awards:

  • Air Pollution – The Silent Threat: Kalyani, Alice, Sophie, and Sophia

  • World Fish Migration Day – The Middle School Eco Club

The Middle School Eco Club presented its World Fish Migration Day advocacy campaign and highlighted the recently held community outreach event. Congratulations to each student who submitted their research this year!

Our Elementary and Middle School STEAM program, a testament to our commitment to community involvement, partners each year with local organizations that support conservation and revitalization in the local community. In a strong partnership, our school has worked alongside the Billion Oyster Project for several years to support oyster repopulation in the New York Harbor.

Pollution and overfishing caused the oyster population to dwindle to dangerously low levels. Since 2014, the Billion Oyster Project, a beacon of hope, has installed over 50 million oysters in New York's harbors and hopes to reach one billion by 2035 with the community's help. Our school's involvement in this crucial project is a testament to our commitment to environmental conservation.

To learn more about Hudson Montessori School's interdisciplinary, theme-based learning approach to education, the Montessori philosophy and methodology, or how the school fosters the love of learning for its students, the school welcomes parents to learn more for children aged 2 to eighth grade at our upcoming open houses.
