STEAM camp this summer focused on innovation and discovery with a strong focus on marine science. The first weeks camp included students ages K-2nd grade, and the second week included students 3rd - 5th grade. On Wednesday each week we read a book about titled the Brilliant Deep which taught the students about a current scientist Ken Nedenmyer and his idea for repopulating coral in response to coral bleaching that has been occurring.
Healthy Aquaponics marine institute provided a guest lecturer to engage the student in a touch tank and help populate the tanks with various species of coral. Following the marine lab scavenger hunt and touch tanks we began building our submarines that applied coding and circuits, and fish and coral identification.
The pictures below are a section of the 5 day week that pertained to marine science exploration.
