Dr. David Taylor, an Assistant Professor of Sustainability at Stony Brook University, recently visited Rocky Point High School and delivered a talk related to environmental stewardship, the connection between literature and conservation, and his own experiences in traveling the world to help support environmental initiatives.

In this first of a four-part Rocky Point School District STEAM Lecture Series, Dr. Taylor shared stories about traveling with environmental theater groups in Cuba and the impact storytelling can have on environmental conservation efforts. He also discussed the development of Nassau and Suffolk counties, and how environmental spaces have been preserved. Middle School and High School students had an opportunity to speak with Dr. Taylor after his presentation to discuss Stony Brook University and its role in sustainability.

“The series is designed to provide students and the community opportunities to interact with professionals in STEAM fields and to generate enthusiasm for pursuing STEAM-related career paths,” said Mr. Aaron Factor, Rocky Point School District’s Director of Math, Science, and Technology.

The next STEAM lecture is slated for Thursday, Jan. 23.
