CLICK HERE to watch "My Blue", a video installation piece created on October 27th, 2016 by artist Julia Krolik and grade 9 Science Students from Cawthra Park.  For the piece, students responded to a program (by Waterlution) about the importance of the Great Lakes in our lives.  Four science classes added their ideas to "My Blue" over the course of the day. The artist put these responses together into the video piece.
