Today our 8th and 9th graders had the opportunity to hear from Charlotte Nowak, a program coordinator from the Island School, about the amazing experience that the Cape Eleuthera Institute offers. In the spring, the 9th grade will travel to the Island School for a week to participate in marine research while experiencing sustainable living.
Our students shared our Coral Project with Charlotte and explained the Coral Restoration Foundation's design challenge that their class is participating in. We were happy to learn that the Island School also has a coral restoration program and is growing stag horn coral on PVC trees in the waters at Cape Eleuthera. Charlotte shared their design with us and was very interested to hear about our students' ideas for what they will be testing and designing.
Charlotte was also interviewed by 9th grader, Danny Beck, for our podcast series. The podcast will be coming out soon, and will be accessible through the podcast Link on this website.
