Students in Jim Evans’ marine science class visited the White House on Oct. 27 to watch Mission Blue, a documentary on the life of the renowned marine biologist Sylvia Earle. The film explores the challenges she faced as a female scientist as well as the devastation of the oceans that she has witnessed over her lifetime.

After the showing, the students got a chance to meet Ms. Earle and ask her questions about her research experiences.
