About this site

SaintJoe H2O is the learning network for the Saint Joseph Marine Institute. The "Saint Joseph Marine Institute," (SJMI) is the name for a unique high school program in the field of Marine Biology within the Saint Joseph School District. The program takes place after normal school hours. Our old static website dates back to 1999, and can be found here. For the visual addict in you... click here: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 to view thousands of images from our last five field studies in the Bahamas and Florida Keys.

As you might be able to tell, this will likely be the final year of using this platform for our class. We will likely be making the jump back to an open Wordpress site in the near future.

Doin' It D.C. Style!

Colt's recent update on his life has inspired me to also update everyone on my shenanigans. I am not living in the beautiful wilderness of Alaska, but I am living in the concrete jungle of Washington D.C.

 

So, since I last checked in, I finished my dissertation research at the University of Rhode Island and am in the process of publishing my results. If all goes as planned, I will be Dr. Nicole Rohr in May with a Ph.D. in Biology! Here is my first chapter in case you are…

Today is the day!

4/1/11

Today is the day! I wake up early and more than ready to head to Florida. We’re meeting in the parking lot behind the East Hills Library and I’m so excited I can’t even contain myself. I eat breakfast and go through my things again to make sure I have everything. With my checklist complete my mother and I head to the lot to meet up with everyone else. Upon our arrival I overhear Miles talking about his hat and I then realize I didn’t pack one; so my mom and I rush home to get one.… Continue

How would you measure ecosystem health?

First off, let me re-introduce myself to people who may be close to a decade younger than me whom I've never met. My name is Nicole Rohr, I am a 2001 graduate of Lafayette High School, and I was in the 2001 class of mar bio (followed by four more trips down with Sean et al. and I worked for 6 months on South Andros at Tiamo Resorts).…

Journal Entry:!!! Marine biology Trip 2014!!!

Day 1:We landed in Fort Launvder dale, Florida. As soon as I got off the plane I got this urge of exicitement and I wondered what did come next. In Fort Lauderdale the environment was very different from Saint Joseph Missouri. There were clear skys and a stream of sun brusting out of the clouds.I also saw as randomly placed bodies of water as we walked to the Aile House.Each body of water varied in size because some were marshes and others were ponds.All of the marshes were bloked off…See More

Mr. Squirrel….aka Jackson was up at 7 and I woke up from him moving around, that booger.  My feet were well red tomatoes, but less squishy tomatoes. We set sail to an island to get more supplies.

Journal entryApril 11 Day1            We start things different today than any trip I’ve been on before. At the airport Jackson plays the piano. Even, entertaining the security guards. Then as we wait for our flight, I saw it, but how could we miss it. The Easter pants man, at each front and back and leg had different colors. We then get on our flight. I slept most of the first leg. Then rubik’s my life away on the second. Achieving a new best time of one minute and eight seconds.           …See More

Day 1Today was take-off day. I got up at 4:30 this morning and we got on flight 3855 on Southwest Airlines. From above, the ocean looks like leather. I love seeing the plane cut through the clouds and flights right on top of it. I also love seeing cars on the highway from above. They look like working ants. The plane ride was only an hour long and it really fast. We're now at LaQuinta, our hotel. We ate at Ale House. We saw lots of ducks.…See More
