Paying it Forward
The eight and ninth grade classes welcomed 24 Kindergarten students to the upper campus to learn more about the Coral Porject through film, games, mini-labs, and art and engineering design challenges.
Our ninth grade students partnered with the first grade class to teach them more about the coral project and invite them to participate in the Coral Restoration Foundation's Plastic Free Tree Challenge. They are excited to work with the stduents. The preseantion shed awarness on the challenge as well at the grant received from the Annette Urso Rickel Foundation that has allowed the student to start the Coral Project.
Today students are developing a method to submerge treated and untreated bamboo in salt water tanks to test the durablity of bambooas an alternative to PVC in the current Coral Tree Model that the Coral Restoration Foundation is using. CRF has recently challenged the students of Florida with coming up with an alternative and we have enetered the challenge!
