Mr. Garwick from Westminster CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

White Sea Bass Restoration (Environmental Service-Learning)

My students need these materials to raise and take care of White Sea Bass, Atractoscion nobilis. These supplies are vital to maintain these wonderful animals so we can restore them to the wild ocean!

My Students

Successful teaching starts by connecting with students in a way that is relevant and unexpected, sparking their curiosity and intrinsic desire to learn. Empowering students as partners in the journey builds trust and confidence to take on new challenges that inspire their development.

Our community is close to marine ecosystems we wish to positively impact, but due to low socio-economics of our students, most do not even experience the local oceans.

As a result, people tend not care about what they do experience. This project will connect the middle school students' urban lives and their community actions with marine ecosystem sustainability and pollution management while building an important academic-minded skill set to empower youth to take charge, today and into their future.

My Project

My students need Instant Ocean Sea Salt, Saltwater Master Test Kits, Freshwater Master Test Kits, Filter Floss, AquaSafe Water Conditioner and other aquatic supplies to allow us to maintain a salt water, aquatic ecosystem in our classroom to raise and take care of White Sea Bass, Atractoscion nobilis.

Our students will be able to apply their science learning and directly experience real world connections.

Yet, the most powerful part of your donation, allows young adults to have opportunities to make our community a better place through science. Through energy product and innovative products you all make our lives better every day; now your donation will allow a new crop of budding scientists: biologists, chemists, environmental engineers to creativity serve our community as we design and construct an enclosed system to raise White Sea Bass in our classroom, collect and analyze environmental data, and digitally document their lives, culminating in their tagging and release into the wild. Our Ocean will be a better place and our students’ future will be brighter.
