Yes- Missouri kids studying marine biology in the Bahamas...

Images were taken from the Andros Island sailing field study, April 2009. Field study is part of the marine biology program in the Saint Joseph School District. Students meet for class on Monday nights throughout the school year.

The field study is conducted from three 45' sailboats along the Andros Island bank/barrier reef. This reef, often said to the the world's third longest continuous reef, remains fairly healthy today. This is due to the fact that the Andros reef hugs the east coast of a one hundred mile long island that is very lightly populated.

Last count indicates a total population of around 8,000 all living in small villages along the eastern coast. This adds a very remote nature to the trip.

*PS- you're hearing Vetiver's "Rolling Sea." BUY THEIR STUFF. I did and I love it. They are an amazing band.

No... not during summer. We travel during the second week in April. We tried college credit a couple of times. Really, the kids weren't so interested. For one, they pay a considerable amount throughout the course of the trip. For another... I only wish there was an AP Marine Biology course. Wait- on second thought... no I don't. Not really. That would severely tighten down our curriculum and limit our innovation year to year.

Check out our website, and the thousands of photos linked there.

Is this field study done during a summer break? Do they get any kind of college or AP credit for completing it?

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
