Hello All, 

Thank you for another great FinS project year! This year we had 35 schools participating from across the province. Thank you for allowing us into your classrooms and homes this year, as we navigated the challenges imposed by school closures and limited access to our aquariums over the past few months.

We hope that you and your students have a great summer.  See you next year!
