The second-grade classes at Christ the King and South City Catholic Academy read a very interesting biography about a scientist named Eugenie Clark, nicknamed The S. She studied fish and specialized in shark studies. It was very unusual for a woman to be a scientist at the time. She was so talented she was asked to open a laboratory in Florida and it’s still open today. Sharks were not thought of as intelligent at the time, until Eugenie taught the sharks to ring a bell to get food. She was a pioneer in her field and opened the door for many young female scientists that came after her.  

The student chose facts about Eugenie that they found most interesting and wrote them into paragraph form. They made an illustration to go with the stories.  We hope you enjoy reading about Eugenie Clark!
