Adventure on the High Sea Number 3

The cost of sending 26 students and their chaperones trawling on the ocean for two hours is $321, including <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I teach at Croatan High School, a North Carolina Honor School of Excellence, a very high performing school which just so happens to be luckily located by the Atlantic Ocean. In my Marine Science classes, my Juniors and Seniors have frequent field trips, and typical hands-on experiences, but I would like to offer them a day on the high sea. We are fortunate to be close to the Duke University Marine Laboratory and they have a research vessel that can be rented. I would like to utilize this resource and take the students trawling in the ocean, dredging in the sound and discovering the Cape Lookout National Seashore at Shackleford Banks. Being on a bonafide scientific research vessel, working the nets, culling and identifying the catch, salt in the air, wind in the hair...makes for an unmatched day of learning on the "high sea".
