Description: 

Imagine a school where the cool kids are the chess team. Welcome to I.S. 318. “Brooklyn Castle” tells the stories of five members of the chess team at a below-the-poverty-line inner city junior high school that has won more national championships than any other in the country. The film follows the challenges these kids face in their personal lives — and on the chessboard — and is as much about the sting of their losses as it is about anticipation of their victories. By Katie Dellamaggiore.

This event is free and open to the public.

Gill Netting
Body: 

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department has been collecting data from 11 Lake Champlain Fish Community Monitoring Stations. Every summer, two 125-foot long nets are set out at each location for a 24 hour period. The focus is on capturing yellow perch, white perch, pumpkin seed, rock bass and other fish species found in the warm water communities of the lake. This allows them to keep tabs on the population and to measure the impacts of invasive species and fishing pressure over a period of time.

SCUBA Diving
Body: 

Most people view Lake Champlain as only a two-dimensional resource, a shimmering sheet of water on which to boat and fish and swim. But the big lake has a third dimension, and exploring its deep, dark, cold depths can be both fascinating and surprisingly enjoyable. The Waterfront Diving Center in Burlington offers professional SCUBA diving instruction that opens up another world on Lake Champlain, one populated by schools of fish and historic shipwrecks.
