Marine Science

Old Kings Elementary Marine Science Flagship won a $10,000 Innovation School Grant to create a Marine Science Lab, a learning space where students can directly interact with marine life who live in a Touch Tank patterned after the one at the Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience in nearby Marineland. Students also participated in a marine robotics competition, created a marine science library and have a remote feed to the dolphin tank at Marineland. Students report that learning about marine life has made them passionate about protecting our waters and ecosystems. The Paul B. & Constance D. Hunter Charitable Foundation provided the foundation with the funding for this project.
