The following is excerpted from the story “New Features Around Campus,” which appears in the Aug. 26 edition of The Winged Post.
The science department has sponsored installation of an aquarium that features many species of tropical fish, coral and other invertebrates, and live rock from Fiji taken from an actual coral reef.
Science department chair and biology teacher Anita Chetty wanted to invite students to the atrium, rather than just have them pass through to class.
“I wanted to enhance the atrium and give it life,” Chetty said.
Funding for the installation came from the prize money won by last year’s seven Intel semifinalists.
