Unique coral reef education pilot program to be conducted in the Bahamas
Date:4/27/2010

educators will be taken by boat to a local coral reef to put their skin diving skills to the test and participate in an immersive learning experience. Teachers will also be creating film documentaries about this experience to share with their students. Additionally, coral reef classroom activities will be introduced to the educators so they may be used to stimulate students' interest in coral reef conservation.

After the two-day program for educators, the project team will give presentations on coral ecosystems and conservation to Nassau's C.V. Bethel Senior High School students who are in the marine science magnet program, and to S.C. McPherson Junior High School's general science class, which is taught by Nicola Williams, one of the pilot program's teacher participants.

On the final day of program, experienced SCUBA divers from the College of the Bahamas will participate in multiple SCUBA dives using sophisticated underwater communications. They will receive training in scientific coral reef survey methods and will experience a Living Oceans Foundation Live Underwater Classroom.

"While the Living Oceans Foundation conducts scientific research of coral reef ecosystems during its four-year Global Reef Expedition, we will have an unprecedented opportunity to conduct marine science education," stated Renaud. "This pilot education project in the Bahamas will help us shape the Expedition's educational program, which will include the involvement of educators and students in our research, the use of multi-media technologies to bring the scientific marvels of the ocean into students' classrooms, and development of coral reef conservation curricula, which can be used internationally."
